Bondfield Tapped to Redevelop St. Michael’s Hospital
Infrastructure Ontario has awarded Bondfield Construction the contract to design, build and finance the expansion and renovation of St. Michael’s Hospital. At a cost of $301M, the development will see construction of a new 17-storey patient-care tower at Queen and Victoria streets that will carry the name of Mattamy Homes chief Peter Gilgan, who donated $30M toward the project, the largest single donation in the hospital’s 122-year history. The 250k SF tower will include five new operating rooms and two new intensive care units.
The project will also involve renovation of 150k SF of existing space, including doubling the size of the emergency department and replacement of the 100-year-old Shuter Wing with a new three-storey building. Work will begin immediately and take three years; the hospital will remain open. The redevelopment project will "transform patient care at St. Michael's Hospital,” noted CEO Dr. Robert Howard, adding the goal is to become Canada’s premier critical care hospital.
