The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP) is proud to announce that the New Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital is the Gold Award recipient in the Infrastructure category of the 2016 National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in Public-Private Partnerships (P3s).
“We are extremely proud of the new Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital and honoured by this award. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all those who were involved. The partnership that came together to build the new OTMH has set a new standard for hospital construction and design in Canada, combining innovative architecture and the latest in technology to deliver high quality patient and family-centred care,” commented Bill Bailey, Vice President of Redevelopment, Halton Healthcare.
The New Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital replaces a legacy hospital. It has the capacity for 457 inpatient beds and additional space to accommodate up to 602 beds in the future.
This DBFM construction had a total project cost of $ 2 billion with the Value for Money demonstrating an estimated cost savings of $383.1 million. The partnership set a new standard for hospital construction and design in Canada, combining innovative architecture and the latest technology to deliver high-quality, efficient, patient and family-centered healthcare.
The Awards Panel took particular note of how the new hospital is expected to act as a core economic stimulant and centre for medical excellence as an “anchored tenant” for the developing north Oakville region. Panelists were particularly impressed with the design and technology innovations in addition to the community input that contributed to the success of the project.
“Hospital Infrastructure Partners are proud to be recognized alongside our partners at Halton Healthcare Services with the CCPPP’s Gold Award for Infrastructure for the delivery of the new Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. This state-of-the-art facility provides the community with high quality patient care and is a testament to the achievements of public-private partnerships in Canadian infrastructure,” stated Marco Di Carlantonio, Executive Director at Fengate Capital Management.
The CCPPP National Awards will be presented on Monday, November 14th, 2016 at the 24th Annual CCPPP National Conference – INNOVATING OUR FUTURE at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in downtown Toronto.
“The new Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital is a wonderful example of how P3s help build and grow healthy, safe, accessible communities. Public-private partnerships have been used to build or redevelop 90 healthcare and treatment facilities across Canada over the past two decades. The innovations in their design and operations not only provide value for the money invested in the project, those innovations support improved patient care and experience,” said Mark Romoff, CCPPP President and CEO.
