RE: Smiths Falls Site Redevelopment and Expansion Project Reaches ‘Substantial Completion’

Smiths Falls, ON The Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital (the “Hospital”) is pleased to announce that the Smiths Falls Site redevelopment and expansion project has reached “substantial completion”. This means that construction is at least 93% complete in accordance with the original project scope. It is an important milestone and tremendous accomplishment for our community and Hospital. This project represents the largest public sector redevelopment project in the history of the area.

The Hospital broke ground to redevelop the Smiths Falls site on October 24, 2008. It has been a community changing project and we are all pleased to be nearing the finish line of construction. The remainder of the work to be completed includes the completion of the Emergency Department renovation (interior/exterior), landscaping, cladding in some areas, equipment testing as well as relocation of a few departments to their permanent homes, and deficiency work. This remaining work is expected to be completed by May 2012. “Reaching this milestone has been the result of a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication from everyone at the hospital and in the local community. This is a great achievement and one we can all be extremely proud of. I believe everyone is pleased to be nearing the finish line of the construction project,” stated Todd Stepanuik, President & CEO.

Larry Sparks, Board Chair commented, “The Board of Directors greatly appreciates the understanding and support provided by our entire community during the redevelopment and building of our new state-of-the-art facility. We extend our special thanks to the residents living in close proximity to the Hospital for your patience and cooperation during this exciting, but busy, time.”

Our entire team looks forward to providing quality patient care to you, your family and friends in our newly developed and renovated space.
