Infrastructure Ontario and Mackenzie Health have released a request for qualifications (RFQ) for the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital New Facility project in the city of Vaughan, Canada.
The project will be developed on a design, build, finance and maintain basis. Submissions will be reviewed to qualify project teams with the design and construction experience as well as the qualified personnel and financial ability to deliver the project.
The deadline for submission of qualification documents is April 17th.
Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care are working with Mackenzie Health to build the new facility. Construction of the hospital, on a portion of an 82-acre parcel of land owned by the City at Major Mackenzie Drive and Jane Street, is scheduled to begin in 2015, with the doors expected to open in 2019.
The new hospital, which will have 350 beds, will include a state-of-the-art emergency department, modern surgical services and operating rooms, acute inpatient and intensive care beds, technologically-advanced diagnostic imaging, specialized ambulatory clinics, single acute care patient rooms for infection prevention and control, and a flexible design to permit adaptation over time as new thinking and best practices emerge.
Mackenzie Health is a regional healthcare provider that includes Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital and the future Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital as well as a network of community based services in Southwest York Region and beyond.
