Government considers P-3 hospital

The McNeil Government is thinking of going the P-3 route to redevelop the Queen Elizabeth Health Sciences Centre.

Infrastructure Minister Geoff MacLellan says a request for supplier qualifications has been issued. MacLellan points out the government hasn’t made a firm decision about using a public-private partnership but they need to look at all reasonable funding and delivery options for the expensive job. Part of the redevelopment will be closure of the V-G and Centennial buildings in the south end.
