The Ottawa Hospital’s new campus will serve the greater Ottawa/Eastern Ontario region, Western Quebec, and Nunavut. The new hospital will feature highly specialized inpatient, outpatient, emergency, and trauma services, treating the most complex adult injuries and illnesses. This world-class centre for academic training and medical research will be networked with partners in Ontario, across Canada, and around the world.

Construction began in fall 2022 on the parking garage that will support the hospital. In late 2022, a RFP was issued by Infrastructure Ontario, seeking a design and development team for the main hospital building. At the conclusion of the RFP process, the successful bidder will work in collaboration with IO, The Ottawa Hospital and the Ministry of Health, under a Development Phase Agreement, to further define and refine project requirements, and design, pricing and risk parameters.
