Companies shortlisted for St. Michael’s Hospital redevelopment project


Infrastructure Ontario and St. Michael’s Hospital have shortlisted three companies to design, build and finance the construction of a new 17-storey patient care tower at the corner of Queen and Victoria Streets in downtown Toronto and the renovation of approximately 150,000 square feet of existing hospital space.

Based on a request for qualifications process that began in December 2012, the following three companies, each including a developer, design and construction firms, and a financial advisor (becoming known as the “usual suspects”) were shortlisted, and will be invited to respond to a request for proposals, expected to be issued in summer 2013:

St. Michael’s Partnership

  • Bondfield Construction Company Limited
  • NORR Limited / Farrow Partnership
  • Rocklyn Capital Inc.

Integrated Team Solutions

  • EllisDon Corporation
  • Kasian Architecture
  • EllisDon Capital Inc. / Fengate Capital Inc.

PCL Partnerships

  • PCL Constructors Canada Inc
  • B+H Architects / Silver Thomas Hanley
  • TD Securities Inc.

The new tower will allow St. Michael’s Hospital to relocate patient beds from an 85-year-old wing and provide larger space for programs that treat some of the most critically ill patients from across Ontario. These programs include patients from the medical-surgical intensive care unit and the largest adult cystic fibrosis program in North America.

Five new operating rooms will be added to the hospital, each large enough to include state-of-the-art medical imaging equipment. These hybrid operating rooms will allow surgeons to perform minimally invasive, image-guided or catheter-based procedures and undertake open surgery in the same operating room.

Redevelopment work will also provide enlarged, state-of-the-art inpatient facilities for orthopedic surgery, oncology and respirology — including the cystic fibrosis program — as well as critical care space for the coronary and medical-surgical units.

The current emergency department will also be expanded. It was originally designed to accommodate 45,000 patient visits a year, but now accommodates more than 70,000 a year — a number that continues to grow with the population.
