North Bay Regional Health Centre North Bay, Ontario, Canada

The North Bay Regional Health Centre is a joint redevelopment project between the North Bay General Hospital and the Northeast Mental Health Centre. The new Regional Health Centre will provide residents of Northeastern Ontario with state-of-the-art acute and mental health care close to home.

Each has its own facility on a common 80-acre greenfield site to offer a state-of-the-art acute care hospital and a modern, long-term mental health facility. The acute care component of the facility is a 574,292 ft2, four-story, concrete structure including a penthouse level. It accommodates 275 beds, as well as support services.

The mental health facility component is a 150,373 ft2, two-story, steel and wood structure with penthouses in the pitched roof structures. It accommodates 113 specialized and forensic mental health beds, associated outpatient services, a client services mall, a gymnasium, workshops, and psychiatric offices. The project includes construction of all site services, roadways and civil works.

Construction was completed in June 2010, ahead of schedule and within budget.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Plenary and PCL for completing the North Bay Regional Health Centre Project early and under budget. I visited the hospital on June 18 and can honestly say that it is a beautiful facility and that the smiling faces of the hospital staff and board members is more than adequate evidence that you have a satisfied client. Once again thank you."
