Update on New Corner Brook Hospital #nlpoli

The Provincial Government has issued a Request for Qualifications to establish an industry short list to solicit proposals for a new 164-bed acute care hospital in Corner Brook.

The new hospital will include the same services currently provided at Western Memorial Regional Hospital, as well an expanded cancer care program, including radiation services.

The facility will be designed, built, financed and maintained by the private sector. Services such as patient care, housekeeping and food services will be provided by public sector employees, as is currently the case.

After the process is complete, a Request for Proposals will be issued to qualifying firms.

Construction of the new regional acute care hospital in Corner Brook is expected to begin in 2019 and be completed by 2023.
