Trenton hospital gets provincial funding for new emergency department

Ontario Construction News staff writer

Ontario is funding the planning, design and construction of a redeveloped and expanded emergency department at Trenton Memorial Hospital.

“The expansion and modernization of Trenton Memorial Hospital’s Emergency Department is critical to serving our growing community and supporting the extraordinary people who care for our patients,” said Stacey Daub, president and CEO, Quinte Health. “This investment underscores our government’s commitment to working with Quinte Health to understand and invest in our hospitals to meet the demands of today and into the future.”

The plan includes renovating about 6,000 sq. ft. and adding more than 1,000 sq. ft. of space. The upgrade will allow the hospital to treat and care for more people, as well as improve patient safety and quality of care through enhanced infection prevention and control measures and dedicated areas for bariatrics and mental health.

Ministry staff is working with Quinte Health to complete early planning and design for this project. A construction schedule will be confirmed once future planning is complete and the project is tendered and awarded.
