Infrastructure Ontario and Mackenzie Health have issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) to design, build, finance and maintain a new state-of-the-art hospital that will be constructed in Vaughan at Major Mackenzie Drive and Jane Street.
The new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will include: a state-of-the-art emergency department; modern surgical services and operating rooms; acute inpatient and intensive care beds; technologically-advanced diagnostic imaging; specialized ambulatory clinics; single acute care patient rooms for infection prevention and control; a flexible design to permit adaptation over time as new thinking and best practices emerge.
The request for qualifications is the first step in the process to select a team to design, build, finance and maintain the project. Submissions will be reviewed to pre-qualify project teams with the design and construction experience as well as the qualified personnel and financial strength to deliver a project the size and scope of the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital. These teams will then be invited to respond to a request for proposals, which will be issued in the fall of 2014.
