Bridgepoint Hospital Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The Bridgepoint Hospital is a 10-storey, 680,000 ft2, state-of-the-art facility for the treatment of complex chronic diseases. The 472-bed facility also includes the Christine Sinclair Ambulatory Care Center and is a center of excellence for complex care learning and promotion. The facility relieves the congestion of the previous building and will provide an improved patient experience for generations to come.

A special feature of this project is the restoration and adaptive reuse of the old Don Jail, a 5-level, 84,000 sq ft architectural landmark and heritage site in the heart of Toronto, which houses the hospital's administrative building, as well as education, and support facilities.

The project also included the demolition of the previous hospital, a clinic building and the Toronto Prison, as well as subsequent redevelopment of the surrounding street and landscapes.

Following the facility's official opening in March 2013, Plenary Health now provides hard and some ancillary facility management services at the hospital and renovated Don Jail.

"The Plenary Health team was thoughtful, professional, and very engaged throughout the process. You also added creative energy and challenged us to rethink some important elements of the project. Because of all of those things, and because of the relationship that we developed with you through the RFP, we are delighted to have you as partners."
