Responding to Community Healthcare Needs

Update Provided on Procurement for New Corner Brook Long-Term Care Facility

In response to a Request for Qualifications issued on January 20 for the design, build, financing and maintenance of the new long-term care facility in Corner Brook, five teams have submitted proposals. The facility will include 120 long-term care beds, 15 palliative care beds and 10 rehabilitative care beds. Construction is scheduled to begin in fall 2017.

“We are encouraged by the level of interest from the private sector and the proposals received through the Request for Qualifications. Partnering with private industry allows for the delivery of priority infrastructure projects and services in a cost-effective manner while resident care will continue to be provided by public sector employees.”
- The Honourable Al Hawkins, Minister of Transportation and Works

The following teams have responded to the Request for Qualifications:

  • Corner Brook Care Partnership
  • Crow Hill Care Solutions
  • Infraworks
  • KMK Capital
  • Lark Group

Following the evaluation of the submissions, a short list of candidates will be identified and a Request for Proposals will be issued to those firms for the design, build, financing and maintenance of the long-term care facility.

The evaluation is being monitored by a fairness advisor, a key component of the procurement process. RFP Solutions Inc. was selected to provide fairness advisory services through a Request for Proposals.
