Toronto, September 1st, 2009 — McCarthy Tétrault’s Infrastructure Group recently advised clients Bridgepoint Health and Infrastructure Ontario on a major new public-private partnership transaction. The two entities announced in mid-August that Plenary Health has signed a contract to design, build, finance and maintain the new Bridgepoint Hospital in Toronto. The new facility will replace the existing aging hospital and has been designed specially for patients with complex chronic disease. Construction will be completed in early 2013 and patients will move in the spring of 2013. In today’s dollars, the deal is valued at $622 million.

McCarthy Tétrault provided legal services to both Bridgepoint Health and Infrastructure Ontario throughout the project from the RFP stage through to a successful Commercial and Financial Close. The McCarthy team was led by partners Gordon Willcocks and Godyne Sibay and included partners Cynthia MacDougall and Jamie Orzech, and associates Andrew Collingwood, Alysha Valenti and Tristan Musgrave (Real Property and Planning Group); and partners Joel Heard and Lara Nathans (Business Law Group).
