Big Leap Forward for Simcoe-Grey Hospitals

April 9, 2021 – The Ontario government is moving forward with hospital redevelopments for both Collingwood and Alliston. The news is contained in the April 2021 Infrastructure Market Update released yesterday.
The Collingwood General and Marine Hospital redevelopment is listed in the report for the first time as a new project in the pre-procurement phase with an estimated cost between $200-$499 million. A request for proposals would be issued in the fall of 2023 and a contract could be signed by 2024. 
Stevenson Memorial in Alliston continues to be listed as a project early in the planning process. Details including delivery model, time and scope are still being determined. 
“This is great news for our region; both projects are moving forward,” said Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson. “While it appears the government is leaning towards redevelopment of CGMH on the existing site, we still have time to make the case for new build on a greenfield site,” he added. “Either way, Simcoe-Grey will soon have two state-of-the-art hospitals.”
