Niagara Region community to have a new hospital built beside existing facility.
Infrastructure Ontario (IO) and Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) have awarded a fixed-price contract of $224 million to EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare (EDIH) for the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital (WLMH) Redevelopment design, build and finance project.
The EDIH team includes EllisDon Corporation, Parkin Architects Limited, and EllisDon Capital Inc.
Caring for West Niagara residents for over 70 years, WLMH provides both inpatient services and outpatient services, including emergency services, complex and palliative care, surgery and a maternal and newborn program. As a site of Hamilton Health Sciences, WLMH also serves as a point of access to one of the largest health systems in Canada for patients requiring more specialized care.
The design-build-finance redevelopment project will involve the construction of a new, larger hospital on the property behind the existing facility. The EDIH team will now mobilize on site, with construction expected to begin in late spring. The target for completion is winter of 2025.
