Infrastructure Ontario and Kingston Health Sciences Centre have issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) for teams to design, build and finance the Kingston General Hospital Phase 2 Redevelopment project.

The request for qualifications is the first step in the process to select a team to help deliver the project. Submissions will be reviewed to prequalify teams with the required design and construction experience applicable to this project, as well as the financial capacity to deliver a project of this size and complexity.

A shortlist of prequalified teams will then be invited to respond to a request for proposals, which is expected to be released in winter 2022. Interested companies must register with merx.com to download the RFQ.

The project, located within the existing facilities of the Kingston Health Sciences Centre’s Kingston General Hospital site, will include the demolition of aging buildings and wings (Etherington Hall, Douglas Wing, Richardson Labs, Dietary and Empire Wings), the renovation of existing spaces, and the construction of a new 12-floor patient tower that will be completed in two consecutive phases to address infrastructure deficiencies in the existing facilities.

The redevelopment will involve construction of a new wing and renovations to the fifth floor of the Kidd/Davies Wing. Features include:

  • 80 net new medical and surgical inpatients beds
  • surgical suite, including 13 operating rooms, and a procedure suite, with designated space for learning and simulation and direct access to the Emergency Department for trauma treatment
  • neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), including 8 net new bassinets
  • labour and delivery suite, including 8 Labour Birth Recovery and Postpartum (LBRP) and 2 operative birthing rooms
  • a new Emergency department with larger trauma bays, private treatment areas for patients with space for family, and central integration of diagnostic imaging, which will accommodate approximately 66,000 visits per year
  • clinical laboratories with open, flexible space to adapt to new technologies
  • new morgue and autopsy suite, pharmacy, data centre, and an Administration and Environmental Exposure Unit
  • two shelled floors and 72 inpatient beds to meet current needs and address future demand
  • an onsite rooftop helipad to allow for faster access to patient transfers by air ambulance
