Three Companies Qualify to Bid on Community Outpatient Centre

Three companies have been short listed to lead the public-private-partnership of the new Community Outpatient Centre in Bayers Lake, Halifax Regional Municipality.

Bird Integrated Health Partners, Community Health Partners and EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare have qualified to bid on the design, build, finance and maintain of the new centre, which is part of the QEII New Generation project.

A request for proposals will be issued to the three successful bidders in July.

A similar request for supplier qualifications for the expansion of the Halifax Infirmary site of the QEII Health Sciences Centre has been issued and a short list is anticipated by the end of July. This expansion includes the construction of the new QEII Cancer Centre, outpatient centre, inpatient centre, including hospital beds and operating rooms, and the new innovation and learning centre.

The QEII New Generation project is a once-in-a-generation opportunity that will better meet the health-care needs of Nova Scotians. Along with the Community Outpatient Centre in Bayers Lake and the expansion of the Halifax Infirmary site, the QEII New Generation project also includes the expansion and renovations of Dartmouth General Hospital and new and renovated operating rooms at Hants Community Hospital in Windsor.

This work will allow services to be moved out of the aging Centennial and Victoria buildings on the Victoria General site, to prepare for their eventual closure.
