Over the next few months, submissions will be evaluated, and a successful proponent is expected to be announced in early 2023. A fairness monitor is overseeing the entire procurement process.
IO and NH are working with the Ministry of Health to deliver this project.
The new South Niagara Hospital will be a full acute care hospital that will include:
- 24/7 Emergency department
- diagnostic, therapeutic, and surgical services
- medical, surgical and intensive care inpatient beds
- ambulatory and post-acute complex continuing care (CCC) services

Designed with the “next age of innovation” in mind, the hospital will be designed and built to meet the Canada Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver standards. In addition, the project is working toward being the first WELL®-certified healthcare facility in Canada focused on the health and well-being of staff, physicians, volunteers, patients, families and caregivers and the Niagara community.
