January Hospital Update: A wintery hello to everyone.. and don't worry, construction is still underway even with the crazy coldness outside! A few updates : 1. December 2013: JBH and McMaster University celebrated a construction milestone. Officials of JBH, McMaster University, the City of Burlington and Region of Halton literally signed off on construction of the joint Lakeshore Road building which will house the Halton McMaster Family Health Centre due to open on the hospital site in spring 2014.Officials gathered on site to etch their signatures on a special steel beam which will be lifted into place to finish the initial construction of the building. Besides the family health centre, the 40,000-square-foot building will host hospital administration and be attached to a large parking facility. This was a milestone event with respect to moving forward and completing phase one of the Redevelopment and Expansion project. 2. The family health centre is a partnership between JBH and McMaster University and will have 10,000 patients and see 26,000 patient visits a year, as well as be the base for training of family medicine physicians and other health profession learners in the region. The new clinic will have four clinician faculty members and 10 family medicine residents. January 2014: The request for proposals is being issued mid-January to the three teams already shortlisted to design, build and finance the second phase of the redevelopment project. The new hospital construction is expected to start in early 2015 and due to open in 2018. From January until early fall 2014, the JBH team will sit on many design presentation meetings and eventually select the proponent who will then be awarded the contract to design, build and finance our new hospital. 3. New parking garage opening spring 2014: JBH Redevelopment and Expansion Project phase One consists of the building of a new 800+ spaces parking garage, Halton McMaster Family Health Centre and hospital administration space. The parking garage is set to open to the public early spring 2014 and is on schedule, relieving hospital parking congestion and offering covered parking for patients, family and staff. Building this new parking garage enables construction to start on the new patient tower which will be situated where JBH parking is currently. 4. Halton McMaster Family Health Centre opening: The health centre is due to open in late spring 2014 and will serve the community in a state-of-the-art building. Residents from McMaster University Dept of Family Medicine will be able to learn within a health care setting in the hospital and in special classrooms within the health centre. Thank you for all your support.
