The Request for Proposals (RFP) seeking a design and development team for a state-of-the-art new hospital in central Ottawa has closed.  

The Ottawa Hospital is on track to deliver one of Canada’s largest acute-care teaching hospitals: a modern, accessible and technologically advanced health-care facility and academic research centre where we will tackle the most complex injuries and illness, train the next generation of health-care workers, and advance life-changing research, innovation and academic excellence.

 “The Ottawa Hospital is proud to provide world-class care, exceptional service and compassion for the patients and families we serve at all our sites,” said Cameron Love, President and CEO of The Ottawa Hospital. “Designing and building a new hospital is a once-in-a-generation opportunity. We’re thrilled to be able to enhance care for our community and region and become a global leader in health-care design, research and innovation.” 

The new hospital will support the delivery of health care to Ottawa and the Eastern Ontario region, Western Quebec, and Nunavut. It will provide a full range of specialized programs and outpatient clinics with plans to integrate Indigenous health and healing practices.  

Infrastructure Ontario and The Ottawa Hospital will evaluate the RFP submission(s) and a development partner is expected to be announced in early 2024.  

Infrastructure Ontario, The Ottawa Hospital and the development partner will then enter into a Development Phase, during which all three organizations will work together to further refine the project and complete the design.

The Request for Proposals was issued on November 29, 2022.

Construction of the new hospital’s parking garage began in early 2023.
