Government's Investment Will Help to Improve Cancer Care Services

TORONTO - The Request for Proposals (RFP) for pre-qualified building teams to submit bids to build and finance The Ottawa Hospital Regional Cancer Centre project has closed.

The request for proposals (RFP) to build and finance The Ottawa Hospital Regional Cancer Centre's redevelopment project was issued on May 25, 2007. The bid submissions will be evaluated over the next few months and a successful bidder is expected to be named in late 2007.  Construction is scheduled to begin shortly thereafter. 

This redevelopment project will include renovations and expansion of the cancer centre at The Ottawa Hospital's General Campus and the addition of a new satellite cancer centre at Queensway Carleton Hospital.

The Ottawa Hospital Regional Cancer Program provides outpatient cancer treatment and research in the Champlain region. It offers systemic therapy (chemotherapy), radiation therapy, surgical oncology, preventative oncology, palliative medicine and supportive care.

This project is guided by principles outlined in the province's Building a Better Tomorrow framework, which ensures public ownership of core assets such as hospitals, schools, and water and wastewater facilities.
