“The next step is to proceed to tender the project.” explains Steve Street, President and CEO of North Wellington Health Care. “We will immediately begin preparing the public tendering documents for release. Vendors will have 90 days to submit proposals. We expect to evaluate and propose a contract award to the MOHLTC for approval by late Spring of this year.”
“We are thankful to our hospital staff, physicians and Board members for the countless hours they have spent to help accomplish the work to-date.” states Street. “We also are grateful to our community and Foundation for their significant financial support to allow this expansion to take place. Staff have been working on phasing plans to minimize, as much as possible, impacts construction will have on our services. As plans for the expansion begin to unfold we will be reaching out to the community to communicate timelines”
The LMH emergency and ambulatory care expansion will improve patient access and quality of care for our residents. The expansion will improve infection prevention and control, patient privacy, accessibility and operational efficiencies.
