New Women's College Hospital will be 630,000 square feet and cost $460 million

The contract to build the new $460-million Women's College Hospital has been awarded to a consortium including architectural firms Perkins Eastman Black and the IBI Group, and developer Bilfinger Berger Project Investments.

Known collectively as the Women's College Partnership, the group will design, build, finance and maintain the project, which is a redevelopment of the current hospital at 76 Grenville Street.

The new hospital will be 630,000 square feet, with the first phase scheduled to commence construction this summer, and the second phase slated for completion in 2016. The project will be funded by Infrastructure Ontario.

Marilyn Emery, the hospital's president and CEO, described the project in a press release as a "state-of-the-art facility will be an easily accessible hub of programs, clinics and services that integrates care, research and education – all based on how women lead their lives. It will be a hospital designed to keep people out of the hospital."
