The request for proposals (RFP) stage has closed for teams to submit their bids to design, build, finance and maintain the new South Niagara Site hospital project. The new South Niagara Site will be an integral part of Niagara Health’s (NH) connected healthcare system that centralizes services from existing facilities, making it easier for residents to access the care they need at one location, provide an overall better experience, and enable communities to be healthier.
Following a fair, open and transparent request for qualifications process, three teams were shortlisted and invited to respond to an RFP in October 2021. Two teams have submitted their proposals by the October 12 deadline – EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare (EDIH) and Niagara Care Partners.
Over the next few months, submissions will be evaluated, and a successful proponent is expected to be announced in early 2023. A fairness monitor is overseeing the entire procurement process.
IO and NH are working with the Ministry of Health to deliver this project.
