EllisDon is now the sole service provider for four Ontario health facilities previously under Carillion Canada operations. Plans to acquire the assets were announced in February.
The company acquired 100 per cent of four Carillion entities that provide support services to the Royal Ottawa Hospital, Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, William Osler Health System and Sault Area Hospital.
“In moving to full ownership of these corporations, EllisDon is confident in delivering results that provide continuity of service to the hospitals, the patients they serve, and of employment for the workforces serving them,” said Ashley Richardson, managing director at EllisDon Facilities Services. “We are very pleased to have finalized the agreement.”
EllisDon, through an affiliate, also now owns 100 per cent of The Healthcare Infrastructure Company of Canada, of which Carillion previously owned 50 per cent.
In March, Carillion Canada’s support service operations were acquired by Fairfax Financial. The newly-formed company is now known as Outland-Carillion Services.
Carillion has been granted creditor protection until May 25 under the Companies’ Creditor Arrangement Act.
