Mount Forest, ON…North Wellington Health Care has officially received approval from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) to move ahead with Stage 3 planning of the emergency and ambulatory care expansion at the Louise Marshall Hospital (LMH) site in Mount Forest, as well as new Medical Education space at both the LMH and Palmerston & District Hospital site.


“LMH staff, physicians, volunteers, and consultants, who worked on the Stage 2 submission, have been eagerly awaiting the MOHLTC approval to continue on in the five-step capital planning process.” states Stephen Street, President and CEO, NWHC. “We are excited and ready to go with our next stage of planning”


“Stage 3 Design Development planning will include details for all rooms and equipment placement in the overall space, and will require a construction phasing plan and cost estimate.  The design work will take into consideration best clinical practices, accessibility, infection prevention/control, and departmental flow.  After approval of Stage 3 we will commence preparation of tender documents” explains Street.
