Toronto - April 12, 2018 - Infrastructure Ontario and Hôpital Montfort have announced the five companies that have been prequalified to build and finance the Orléans Health Hub project.

The Orléans Health Hub project involves the construction of a new facility at the corner of Mer-Bleue Road and Brian Coburn Boulevard. The hub will bring together several health and community service partner organizations to respond to client needs within a comprehensive service delivery model of care. Services provided will include:
- A needs-based ambulatory program
- Diagnostic imaging
- Geriatric support and wellness
- Mental health and wellness
- Active rehabilitation.
Once complete, residents of the greater Orléans area, from newborns to seniors, will have access to integrated programs close to home, focused on their needs and offered in both official languages.
- Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care are working with Hôpital Montfort to procure and deliver the facility, which will be publicly owned, controlled and accountable.
- This project is being delivered using Infrastructure Ontario's Alternative Financing and Procurement model, an innovative way of financing and procuring large, complex public infrastructure projects.
- Ontario is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, public transit, roads and bridges in the province's history. To learn more about what's happening in your community, go to Ontario.ca/BuildON.
- This initiative aligns with the government's commitment to support community hubs and help Ontarians in their everyday lives by making it easy to access multiple services under one roof within their communities.
