May 2, 2022 | By Paul Grossinger
Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) have awarded a fixed-price contract of $224 million to EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare (EDIH) to design, build and finance the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital (WLMH) Redevelopment project.
As a community hospital, WLMH provides both inpatient services and outpatient services, including emergency services, complex and palliative care, surgery and a maternal and newborn program. As a site of Hamilton Health Sciences, WLMH also serves as a point of access to one of the largest health systems in Canada for patients requiring more specialized care.
The redevelopment project will involve the construction of a new, larger hospital on the property behind the existing facility.
The EDIH team includes:
- Applicant Leads: EllisDon Corporation
- Design Team: Parkin Architects Limited
- Construction Team: EllisDon Corporation
- Financial Advisor: EllisDon Capital Inc.
EDIH will now mobilize on site and construction will begin in late spring 2022. Construction is expected to be complete in winter 2025.
