The Government of the Northwest Territories (Canada) has selected Boreal Health Partnership (BHP) as the Preferred Proponent for the Stanton Territorial Hospital Renewal PPP project.
Boreal Health Partnership is a consortium consisting of Carillion/Hochtief/Bird Capital as the equity providers; Bird Construction, Clark Builders Ltd. and Kasian Architects as the design builder and Carillion Canada Inc. as the service provider.
The team beat out competition from EllisDon Corporation and Plenary Group (Canada) Ltd.
The new hospital will include a floor area of over 280,000 square feet and will offer outpatient and inpatient services including emergency, medical imaging, dialysis, obstetrics, pediatric, cardio and mental health departments as well as day procedure and surgery suites. Specific enhancements will include:
The project involves the design, build, renewal, finance and maintenance of the facility for a period of 30 years.
Minister Miltenberger stated:
This is a major step in providing the benefits of a state-of-the-art hospital to residents of the Northwest Territories. Stanton has been in service since 1988. The facility is aging and is due for a major renewal. Due to the complexity of the renewal, the GNWT is leveraging the experience gained thorough Public Private Partnerships, which have become the preferred method of procurement for major health care infrastructure projects in Canada, to design, build, finance and maintain Stanton."
Edmund Mahabir, Carillion's Executive Vice President, Public Private Partnerships and Construction, commented:
"The BHP team is excited and looking forward to working collaboratively with GNWT to realize the vision of quality health care in the region with the development of a state-of-the-art health care facility. We value the opportunity to be involved in this important project and maintain a long-term partnership with all stakeholders."
