The Ottawa Hospital’s new campus will be built on a 50-acre site bordered by Carling Avenue, Preston Street, and Prince of Wales Drive, near Dow’s Lake in Ottawa.

In February 2024, The Ottawa Hospital (TOH) and Infrastructure Ontario (IO) signed a Development Phase Agreement where TOH, IO, The Ottawa Hospital Build Partners and the Ontario Ministry of Health will work collaboratively to finalize the design, pricing and schedule of what will become one of Canada’s most modern, accessible and sustainable academic and acute care hospitals.

Since spring 2023, construction crews have been busy on the site of The Ottawa Hospital’s new campus.   

Excavation on the portion of the site where the parking garage will be built was completed in fall 2023.  In spring 2024, work on footings and concrete structures continues and work is beginning on the above ground structures. Three tower cranes are on site to help move heavy materials into position as the parking garage is built.

Throughout the project, TOH is working closely with arborists to preserve as many trees as possible. Because some trees will have to be removed due to construction, a tree conservation plan was developed with input by arborists and in consultation with the City of Ottawa and the National Capital Commission and with TOH’s master site plan approved by the City of Ottawa.
