Cambridge Memorial Hospital is pictured on Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014.
Concord-based Bondfield Construction will handle renovation work at Cambridge Memorial Hospital, officials with the hospital and Infrastructure Ontario announced Tuesday.
According to a press release issued by the two organizations, the renovation will cost $187 million and see the hospital’s capacity increase by 52 beds.
Also included will be an expansion of the hospital’s emergency department, clinical support services and rehabilitation facilities, as well as a new medical education campus and reception area.
“This is a thrilling day for the hospital and the communities of Cambridge and North Dumfries,” hospital president Patrick Gaskin said in the release.
“In five short years, our patients will have access to expanded services in a brand new, modern hospital that is designed to meet our growing communities’ needs for generations to come.”
Construction is expected to begin in the near future.
Bondfield’s website lists CMH as one of 25 health care projects it has worked on in Ontario, with others including two at Kitchener’s Grand River Hospital site and a $50-million renovation at Brantford General Hospital.
