GBHS Receives Approval to Plan Next Steps for Centre Grey Hospital

Grey Bruce Health Services today received approval from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care on its Stage 2 Submission to rebuild the Centre Grey Hospital in Markdale.

"This is very good news for our Centre Grey communities and takes us one step closer to building a brand new hospital. Our next submission to the Ministry consists of the overall design for the new facility, and includes detailed engineering and architectural drawings. That Stage 3 document is well underway" said Lance Thurston, President and CEO of GBHS.

The new hospital will be approximately 68,000 square feet and includes four acute care beds, a palliative care room, 24/7 emergency room with five treatment areas, a procedures room, laboratory, diagnostic imaging services, physio, and space for ambulatory care clinics. Stage 4 involves the working drawings and final cost estimates, and once approved, the project goes to tender for construction.

"I know our communities and our donors have waited a long time for a new hospital, and we will continue working hard with the Ministry of Health and our LHIN to get the next Submission approved as soon as possible," said Thurston.

Construction is anticipated to begin in 2018 and will take two years to complete. Updates will be posted on the GBHS website at
