Bondfield Construction has signed a $187-million contract with Cambridge Memorial Hospital and Infrastructure Ontario to build and finance the hospital’s expansion and redevelopment.

Construction will begin immediately at the Cambridge, Ont. hospital, which is about 100 kilometres southwest of Toronto.

Cambridge and North Dumfries-area patients will benefit from increased capacity at the hospital. Through renovations and new construction, the hospital will see an increase in up to 52 beds, for a total of up to 197 beds.

Other improvements to the hospital will include:

  • Expanded clinical services, including the emergency department, surgery services, medicine, mental health, obstetrics and rehabilitation.
  • Expanded clinical support services, including its laboratory, diagnostic imaging and central supply services.
  • An inviting lobby and reception area designed to make navigating the building easier and access to common clinical services and retail area.
  • A new medical education campus.

“In five short years, our patients will have access to expanded services in a brand new, modern hospital that is designed to meet our growing communities’ needs for generations to come,” said Patrick Gaskin, president and CEO of Cambridge Memorial Hospital. “Our staff, physicians and volunteers worked long and hard over the past three years to get us to this point. We can now close this chapter and turn our energies towards the real and complete transformation of our hospital.”
