William Osler Health System has over 800 beds and a health care team of over 4,000 staff, 700 physicians and 1100 volunteers. Osler provides programs and services to 1.3 million area residents in the growing and diverse communities they serve. William Osler Health System has three facilities – Brampton Civic Hospital, Etobicoke General Hospital and Peel Memorial (currently being redeveloped).
Brampton - William Osler Health System received Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care approval to award AIM Waste Management Inc. a contract to complete enabling works for the Peel Memorial redevelopment project. Enabling works includes demolition of the buildings and preparing the site for construction of the new Peel Memorial.
“We are very pleased to be moving forward with this important step in the rebuilding of Peel Memorial and revitalization of this downtown site,” said Matthew Anderson, Osler President and CEO. “It is an exciting time for our organization and our community with the Peel Memorial and Etobicoke General Hospital redevelopment projects moving forward – these redevelopments along with continued growth at Brampton Civic are critical to meeting the health needs of our community today and well into the future.”
“These projects moved quickly through the approval phases as a result of the strong advocacy, commitment and support of our local MPPs,” added Anderson. “We want to thank them for their support and look forward to continuing to work with all our funding partners towards making these new facilities a reality in our community.”
In August 2011, 15 companies submitted applications through a request for qualification (RFQ) to pre-quality to be part of the enabling works request for proposal (RFP) process. Eight of these companies were qualified to participate in the RFP process. AIM Waste Management Inc. was the preferred bidder chosen through the RFP.
“We had eight excellent submissions from top organizations through the RFP process. When you receive high caliber submissions from skilled organizations, it is an opportunity to maximize efficiency, cost-effectiveness and get a quality service, said Ann Ford, Osler VP Development and Support Services. “We have a great contractor in Aim Waste Management and look forward to handing them the keys to get started.”
The contract for enabling works is $4.3 million.
AIM will be onsite in December. Demolition will start on the inside of the buildings first, with the exterior demolition of the buildings to follow. The project is expected to be completed in summer 2012.
The public is invited to join Osler President and CEO Matthew Anderson, VP of Development and Support Services Ann Ford and VP Project Delivery Derrick Toigo from Infrastructure Ontario for an update on this important facility project on Thursday, December 1, 2011 at the Chandni Gateway Convention Centre, 5 Gateway Blvd (just south of Queen Street).
