Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital (OTMH) is being recognized nationally.

The local hospital announced Tuesday (Nov. 29) that the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP) has named it one of the recipients for the 2022 National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in P3s.

The CCPPP presents this award each year to showcase Canadian excellence and innovation in project financing, service delivery, infrastructure and/or generation of economic benefit, which result in enhanced quality of public services & facilities.

OTMH received the Award of Merit for service delivery at P3 2022, the 30th anniversary of the CCCP’s annual conference on Monday (Nov. 21).

“This year, the projects being honoured are transforming our communities, from building state-of-the-art high schools and hospitals to bringing critical broadband service to rural and remote citizens,” said Lisa Mitchell, CCPPP’s President and CEO.

“These seven projects demonstrate the continuing evolution and resiliency of the P3 model in delivering best-in-class infrastructure for Canadians that is innovative and cost effective.”

The Design-Build-Finance-Maintain (DBFM) $2-billion hospital has been in operation since 2015 and is one of the largest infrastructure projects in the province.

Equipped with multiple smart technology enhancements and opened on time and on budget, the OTMH has 457 beds and shelled-in space to facilitate 602 beds by 2023.

“The project demonstrates the resiliency of the P3 model, with top service delivery continuing despite the global collapse of initial consortium partner Carillion Canada Inc. in 2018,” wrote the CCPPP in its summary.

“As a result, EllisDon stepped in at short notice and took over 100 per cent responsibility for the 30-year management of the hospital’s facilities and services.”

Established in 1993, CCPPP is a national not-for-profit non-partisan, member-based organization with broad representation from across the public and private sectors.
