Community Engagement

Share This Page

With construction targeted to begin in 2022 on the new South Niagara Project, we are committed to keeping the community up to date on the latest progress on the planning and construction.

Look and Feel Survey

As part of the planning for the South Niagara Hospital Project, Niagara Health will be releasing a series of general surveys to our staff, physicians and community that accompany the meetings and workshops underway.

Looking ahead, Niagara Health is requesting feedback on general design aspects of specific areas of the future South Niagara Hospital in terms of tone of colours and materials that should be considered. The survey is also requesting feedback on what feelings the design should stimulate. The input received will assist us in designing artist renderings for future engagements and then transferred into specifications included in the planning guide for the project company constructing the new hospital.
