Legacy Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital:

Halton Healthcare will work with the Town to keep the facility secure and to decommission it by March 31, 2016, at which time the Town will take possession.

Oakville Mayor Rob Burton has stated, “Decisions about its use requires Council approval. The town’s current plan, once in possession, is to conduct environmental, heritage and site assessments before substantive demolition takes place.”

Please visit the Town of Oakville website for updates.

Equipment and Furniture

In addition to the 39,000 pieces of new equipment already located at the new site, additional furniture and equipment from the legacy site will be moved over several weeks before and after the new hospital opens. Items that are no longer required and are not moved will become available to the public for purchase through an online auction in January and onsite sales in February.

    I am very interested in items from your maternity unit. Over the past 4 months 19 babies have died at a hospital in Kingston Jamaica as a result of scarcity of key resources which you may have among your surplus equipment. Please advise asap how I may go about competing for such items.
    I made earlier inquires and would really appreciate your help in order to address the dire circumstances in the Jamaican hospital indicated.I do have a list that was priorized should you be interested in seeing it.

    The following are items in the Maternity Unit that I am interested in competing for in your auction:

    eight incubators, six ventilators, six vital sign monitors, eight photo therapy lamps, four radiant warmers, and six infusion pumps.

    These items will be used in a Maternity Unit in a Hospital in Kingston Jamaica currently undergoing a crisis in that area of the facility.I have spoken to Ceo Ms. Tina Triano regarding this matter and was advised of this process. I assure you the need is dire and am hoping you will give serious consideration to my request. I will be traveling to Jamaica on December 29th returning on January 12th.
