Construction has started on a new acute care hospital in Corner Brook, N.L. The seven-storey, 55,742-m2 (600,000-sf) facility will be connected to the long-term care home currently under construction.
The Corner Brook Health Partnership has been selected to design, build, finance, and maintain the new hospital with an estimated contract of $750 million. The partnership consists of Plenary Group, PCL Construction, Marco Services Ltd, and Johnson Controls Canada.
“Once open, acute care services will be offered in a modern hospital, one of the most efficient hospitals in Canada,” said John Haggie, the health and community services minister.
Construction is anticipated to be completed in 2023.
