Building a Healthier Niagara | South Niagara Project

Healthcare in Niagara

We are extremely fortunate to be in a position to plan for such a significant investment in healthcare for our region. With the groundbreaking ceremony having taken place in July 2023, construction on the new South Niagara Hospital has begun. The hospital is expected to take approximately five years to build, with opening planned for summer 2028. 

The new hospital will be an integral part of a connected healthcare system that will improve the patient and caregiver experience and strengthen access to local services. Our planning is looking ahead for the decades to come, and part of this planning includes designing an infrastructure to accommodate technology and delivery of healthcare services in ways we cannot even envision now. There will be opportunities to enhance services and introduce new ways to deliver services closer to home or in the home, which is becoming increasingly possible as technology and medical practices continue to evolve.

Community Involvement

Engagement with our community will continue throughout the planning process in order to gather critical input on the new hospital’s look, feel and function. This feedback will ensure the hospital is designed and built to fully support patient, family and staff wellness in all aspects of the care process. So far, we have received input from more than 2,500 Niagara Health staff, patients, physicians, families, partners, and community members.

We are working closely with the Ministry of Health, and feedback from them is positive. We will also continue to work closely with our community and hospital staff to implement the project, and we look forward to providing updates along our journey.

Location & Services

The new South Niagara Site will be located at the intersection of Biggar Road and Montrose Road in Niagara Falls, just off the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW).  

Proposed Services by Location

We plan to have a strong, yet different, presence once the South Niagara Hospital opens, currently targeted for 2028.
