Infrastructure Ontario and Cambridge Memorial Hospital have released a request for proposals to prequalified companies to build and finance the hospital's expansion and redevelopment project.
A request for qualifications (RFQ), issued in June 2013, prequalified the following companies with the construction and financial capacity to undertake a project of this size and complexity:
The project includes a combination of renovations and new construction at the hospital. A new acute care wing will be built to include:

Once submissions to the request for proposals are received and evaluated, the successful project team is expected to be selected and announced in summer 2014. Construction is expected to begin shortly thereafter.
Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care are working with Cambridge Memorial Hospital to expand and renovate the facility, which will remain publicly owned, publicly controlled and publicly accountable.
