Project Overview

Discussions regarding the replacement of the Stuart Lake Hospital have been ongoing since 2008.

In September 2015, Northern Health submitted a concept plan to the Ministry of Health. Northern Health submitted a revised concept plan to government in summer 2018, which was approved in October 2018.

The business plan, finalizing details such as scope and budget, was approved in January 2020. In April, 2020, the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process for the Design Early Works Agreement was initiated, and closed in June 2020. In May 2021, Graham Design Builders LP was selected as the successful proponent of the project with their proposal for design, build, finance and maintenance of the new hospital.

Presently, the project is well into the procurement phase with plans to begin construction this building season of 2022. Northern Health is working with the contractor to ensure that the Stuart Lake Hospital meets the community and health service needs while keeping within the Design Build Agreement.

Engagement is a major part of Northern Health Capital Projects, and there will be many opportunities for input from the community as this project progresses. Once construction has started for the Stuart Lake Hospital Replacement, this milestone will be celebrated by us on-site, online, and in the media. We hope you will join us!
