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.

The procurement process for the main hospital build began in November 2022 with the release of a Request for Proposals (RFP) seeking a design and development team to deliver what will become one of Canada’s most modern, accessible and sustainable academic and acute care hospitals.  The RFP closed in October 2023 and a development partner is expected to be announced early 2024.

Construction on the parking garage that will support the hospital began in Spring 2023.

Construction Update

Construction crews are busy on the site of The Ottawa Hospital’s new campus.  Excavation is finished on the portion of the site where the parking garage will be built and work on footings and concrete structures is now underway. Three tower cranes have been built to help move heavy materials into position as the parking garage is built.
