Mississauga, ON – The Credit Valley Hospital, Bondfield Construction and Infrastructure Ontario are pleased to announce the substantial completion of the hospital’s Phase II Capital Project, featuring the addition of A and H wings.

Substantial completion means the main portion of construction is complete in accordance with the project agreement and the facility is now turned over to the hospital.

The Credit Valley Hospital Phase II Capital Project reached substantial completion three months ahead of schedule and under its $162.8 million construction budget.

The hospital’s expansion project has resulted in the creation of approximately 270,000 square feet of new construction and 70,000 square feet of renovations. It will increase the hospital’s capacity from 382 to 471 beds and double the number of labour and delivery rooms from seven to 15, while providing additional room for growth.

Due to the large size of the overall expansion, select clinical areas and services have been turned over for occupancy as they have reached completion throughout the past year. These areas include expanded laboratory services and genetics counselling, endoscopy clinic, inpatient rehabilitation and mental health care areas, as well as an expanded inpatient complex continuing care area.

The final milestone of the project will be the opening of the newly named Erin Mills Regional Women’s and Children’s Health Centre, in honour of a $6 million gift from the Erin Mills Development Corporation. The new Centre will be open for patient care in early May 2011. The Centre will house a comprehensive range of programs including: expanded birthing and mother-baby units, an advanced Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and the regional paediatrics program, which includes the largest paediatric oncology satellite program in Ontario outside of the Hospital for Sick Children.

Bondfield Construction was selected to build and finance the hospital redevelopment project and began construction of the new facility in June 2008. Approximately 150 construction workers were on-site daily at this project at the peak of construction.

“The completion of this new facility demonstrates the McGuinty government’s commitment to improving Ontarians’ access to quality care and to expanding health care facilities across the province,” said the Honourable Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Infrastructure.

“This addition to The Credit Valley Hospital will provide families in Mississauga and surrounding communities with expanded programs and services in a state-of-the-art healing environment,” said the Honourable Harinder Takhar, Minister of Government Services and MPP for Mississauga-Erindale.

“This expansion project enables The Credit Valley Hospital to continue to provide access to the highest quality of care for our patients,” said Michelle DiEmanuele, president and CEO, The Credit Valley Hospital. “This new space will allow us to provide care in a truly patient and family centered atmosphere.”

Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care worked with The Credit Valley Hospital and Bondfield Construction to manage the construction of the project, which will remain publicly owned, publicly controlled and publicly accountable. Infrastructure Ontario is a Crown corporation dedicated to delivering some of the province's larger and more complex infrastructure renewal projects - ensuring they are built on time and on budget – and to providing the public sector and not-for-profit organizations with long-term financing to renew their infrastructure.
