Institutional | ELLISDON: WOODSTOCK GENERAL HOSPITAL • Project cost: $685 million • Project location: Woodstock, Ontario • Employees on-site: 270 • Project scope: 350,000-square-foot hospital EllisDon: Woodstock General “EllisDon is working to take the lead in BIM.” –Andre Jokiel, senior project manager EllisDon is using BIM software to coordinate mechanical and HVAC installations. « It Takes a Teamonstruction manager and general contractor EllisDon has had enough experience in healthcare construction to know that any successful project in this sector takes a team approach. So, when the company was selected to serve as the contractor for the new Woodstock General Hospital in Woodstock, Ontario, it was important that the consultants, hospital staff, Infrastructure Ontario and the construction crew collaborated to keep the project moving forward effectively, Senior Project Manager Andre Jokiel says. Since 1895, Woodstock General Hospital, located in Woodstock, Ontario, has provided a healthcare resource for the local community. The current facility provides primary care to more than 37,000 Woodstock residents and specialty services to more than 100,000 residents of Oxford County. But aging populations and advances in medical technology have placed new demands on the community’s healthcare infrastructure, requiring a new facility. The new hospital will greatly increase the hospital’s capacity and provide it with the ability to accommodate regional programs and services. The $685 million project is located on a 25-acre greenfield site on the city’s south side. The 350,000-square-foot structure will feature 178 beds including in-patient medical, surgical, critical care, women’s health, and a complex for continuing care, mental health and rehabilitation unit beds. Specific improvements in services include: • A new 22-bed inpatient rehabilitation program, in partnership with available community agencies; WOODSTOCK GENERAL HOSPITAL SHOWCASES ELLISDON’S HEALTHCARE EXPERTISE. BY BROOKE INFUSINO • Diagnostic using the latest in digital imaging technologies for diagnosis and reductions in patient wait times; • Surgical services with five operating room theatres; • 12 critical care beds and 33 complex continuing care beds, including a six-bed palliative care unit; • A new maternal/child/women’s health unit with 14 beds, including five birthing rooms; and • Mental health beds. EllisDon earned the contract under Infrastructure Ontario’s recently adopted and unique method of build/finance/maintain. This new method of contracting places the responsibility for financing and maintaining a facility in the hands of a private partner, thus CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM JANUARY 2010 http://www.CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM
