This new hospital facility involves the construction of approximately 1.6 million square feet on a 50-acre greenfield parcel of land at Third Line and Dundas Street, and it will replace the existing Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital and provide state-of-the-art healthcare services for the surrounding area.
The facility, targeting LEED Silver, will have built-to capacity for 457 beds with additional shell space to allow for future growth to 602 beds. The facility buildings include three main sections: a five-storey section for complex continuing care and rehabilitation that will also house a number of outpatient programs like nephrology and includes the mechanical penthouse on the fifth floor; a 10-storey inpatient tower section containing patient bedrooms, operating theatres, as well as pre- and post-operative support functions; and a four-storey therapeutic and diagnostic imaging section that houses emergency care, diagnostic imaging, ambulatory clinics, maternal/child services, adult mental health, and two floors for the mechanical electrical penthouse. A fourth section serves as the two-storey main hospital entrance and lobby and connects the rehabilitation block to the inpatient tower block.
Ground was broken in summer 2011, with concrete foundations poured in 2012. The facility is more than 75-per-cent complete as the project heads toward substantial completion on July 31, 2015. The hospital will open to the public in December 2015.
