With the shovels ready to break ground this summer, Niagara Health and Infrastructure Ontario announced yesterday (Feb. 21) that a builder has been awarded the $3.6 billion contract to construct the new South Niagara Hospital.

EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare (EDIH) was awarded the contract to design, build, finance and maintain the new 1.3-million-square-foot Niagara Falls hospital, expected to open in 2028.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare to bring this exciting new hospital to Niagara. The team at EDIH has created a truly impressive building design that is specific to our needs, showcasing their knowledge and expertise in healthcare infrastructure,” said Lynn Guerriero, President and CEO of Niagara Health.

“The new state-of-the-art hospital is going to transform healthcare for the Niagara region and will attract healthcare workers to the region. I look forward to watching it come to life over the next few years.”

Centrally located in Niagara Falls, just off the QEW on the corner of Montrose and Biggar Roads, the new 12-storey, 469-bed facility will offer a full scope of hospital services including emergency, critical care, diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical services, as well as Centres of Excellence in complex care, wellness in aging, and stroke.

“It was with tremendous efforts put forth by a great deal of people to reach this milestone,” said Joey Comeau, EVP and COO, EllisDon Capital.

“EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare is excited to reach commercial and financial close and we are looking forward to delivering this monumental project for the communities of South Niagara.”
