November 16, 2018
On November 16, 2018, EllisDon Infrastructure RIH General Partnership entered into a Project Agreement with the Interior Health Authority to design, build, finance, maintain and perform life cycle rehabilitation on the Royal Inland Hospital Patient Care Tower Project.
Construction of the Project will occur in two phases. The first involves design and construction of the tower, which will house 11 operating rooms, mental-health and medical/surgical beds, a surgical suite, a perinatal centre with labour and delivery rooms, obstetrics and postpartum beds and a neonatal intensive-care unit. The second phase involves renovation and expansion of the emergency department, pediatric ward, post-anesthetic recovery ward and the morgue. More parking stalls will also be added to the main hospital structure. The tower is expected to open in 2022, with the second-phase expansion expected in 2024.
McCarthy Tétrault LLP advised the underwriters for EllisDon with team led by Samantha Cunliffe that included Linda Brown, Robin Mahood, Liezl Behm and Ailbish Skinner.
