Infrastructure Ontario and William Osler Health System have issued a request for qualifications to design, build, finance and maintain the new Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness.
Peel Memorial will provide patients with specialized care in a modern facility. It will also serve as a model for community partnerships, offering more choices for patients, increased access to high quality services and innovative models of care.
Main areas of services will include:
* urgent care and day surgeries
* diagnostic services, including CT and bone density scans
* women's and children's wellness programs
* mental health and addictions programs
* seniors' wellness and family health
* preventative care for chronic conditions such as diabetes and asthma
The request for qualifications is the first step in the process to select a team with both the construction expertise and financial capacity to design, build, finance and maintain the new facility. Submissions will be reviewed to pre-qualify project teams with the design, construction and facilities management experience as well as the qualified personnel and financial strength to deliver a project the size and scope of Peel Memorial. These teams will then be invited to respond to a request for proposals, which is expected to be issued in early spring 2013.
To further enhance the services planned for the new facility, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care is providing an additional $8.6 million in funding to assist with planning and design costs, bringing the total funding amount to $17 million.
