    The procurement phase of the Mills Memorial Hospital (MMH) replacement project continues to be on-schedule.

    Project Management is continuing to work through the modified Request for Proposals (RFP) process with a qualified bidder, and the final proponent will be formally announced when the RFP process is closed and fulfilled. In this portion of the process, the bidder has been meeting with facility user groups to ensure a draft design that can meet clinical needs, based in large part on best practices and input from the physicians, nurses, clinicians and many allied workers that use the facility to fulfill health care needs every day. If the design that results from this phase is approved, it will not be a complete and final work – input will still be required for many aspects of the final facility design to met and respect the cultural and healthcare needs of the public, specifically respecting local communities.

    After a proponent is announced, the Project management Office will initiate public engagement work, including more detailed information-sharing along with advisory sought for the next stages in design planning.

  • Procurement On-Schedule

    Procurement for the Mills Memorial Hospital (MMH) replacement project continues to be on-schedule.

    We are working through some changes in the initial procurement plan because there were no acceptable bids for the Seven Sisters RFP (Request for Proposals). The bids received were higher than anticipated in the project budget and projected schedules longer than allowed for construction. The Seven Sisters replacement project has been added to the Request for Qualifications/RFP processes for the overall MMH redevelopment project, but we are still maintaining the project timelines. Adding the Seven Sisters project into the overall MMH redevelopment improves the likelihood that timeline and budgetary expectations are met by allowing one contractor to plan, schedule and construct both Seven Sisters and the new MMH.

    The Project Office for the MMH replacement will be located in Terrace (address TBD) and recruitment continues for dedicated roles. Additional roles are being added to Northern Health Careers over the next few weeks.

    On May 21st the Business Plan for the Mills memorial Hospital replacement project was approved by the Treasury Board and announced by the Ministry of Health. The Northern Health Capital Projects team is now moving quickly to move the project forward and start the exciting work of procurement, and ultimately construction.

    These next steps are integral to the process of replacing the hospital. The Procurement phase will be led by a project director, leading a planning team who reports to the Project Board (members from Ministry of Health, Northern Health and other stakeholders). The project Board is accountable to the Ministry of Health to ensure the project is implemented following the government-approved business plan and government capital asset management policies.

    The project procurement process involves a series of consecutive pieces of work to identify the contractor to build the facility – this series includes a Request for Qualifications (RFQ), followed by a Request for Proposals (RFP), followed by the identification of Preferred Proponent, Final Approval & Financial Close.
    The procurement phase can last up to 18 months; however, once completed, construction typically begins quickly.

    Replacing Mills memorial Hospital will be staged, to ensure that the transition is ultimately focussed on ease for patients and staff at every point of care. The first stage will involve the replacement of the Seven Sisters facility, which will be rebuilt in the area beside the current psychiatric services area. This work will commence in early Fall, 2019 after the RFP has been completed.
