Redevelopment work at the existing facility will:

  • include renovation of approximately 60,000 square feet of space
  • provide support services for the heart catheterization/electrophysiology suite, surgical suite and the cardiac intensive care unit

The new hospital will remain publicly owned, publicly controlled and publicly accountable.
