 Zeidler Partnership Architects has been selected to lead the planning, design and compliance aspects of the Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital project.

The Toronto architectural firm will establish the design guidelines for the successful building team and monitor construction progress throughout the project.

The new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will include a state-of-the-art emergency department, modern surgical services and operating rooms, acute inpatient and intensive care beds, advanced diagnostic imaging, specialized ambulatory clinics, and single acute care patient rooms for infection prevention and control.

Once the planning, design and compliance aspects are completed, the hospital and Infrastructure Ontario will issue a request for qualifications for a company to design, build, finance and maintain the project using the alternative financing and procurement model. Under this model, risks are transferred to the private sector.

Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care are working with Mackenzie Health to build the new facility, which will be publicly owned, controlled and accountable.
