Safe, modern facilities are essential for leading-edge acute care, research and teaching hospitals. In Phase 1 of our hospital redevelopment project, we added 170,000 square-feet of new space and renovated an additional 143,000 square-feet at KGH. This year, we're focused on obtaining approval for our Phase 2 redevelopment project, which includes plans for a brand new neonatal intensive care unit, labour and delivery facilities, labs and operating rooms.
Phase 2 functional planning is complete
In 2016-17 we will:
Obtain approval to proceed with Phase 2 redevelopment
How are we doing?
In our third quarter (Q3), October to December, KGH formally executed the Planning Agreement with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC). We have approved our governance structure for creating the Stage 2 Functional Program. Agnew Peckham has been retained to guide the process and create the final documentation.
In continuing to support the evolving care needs of our community, modern facilities are essential for supporting leading-edge acute care, research and teaching hospitals. Phase 2 redevelopment plans at KGH include new equipment, building new facilities and adding modern technology in key areas of the hospital, including Clinical Laboratories, Neonatal Intensive Care, Labour and Delivery, Operating Rooms, the Emergency Department and our data centre. Working Groups for the five areas to be redeveloped have begun their work to contribute to the functional program for each area. Our goal is to submit our functional program to the Ministry by September.
ARE WE ON TRACK TO MEET THE TARGET BY YEAR END (March 31, 2017)?
Yes, we are on track with our planned milestones to proceed with functional programming for our Phase 2 redevelopment project.
