Mississauga, ON, June 12, 2017— This past weekend, Infrastructure Ontario ("IO") and Sinai Health System announced they have selected EllisDon Capital Inc. ("EllisDon") to build and finance Sinai Health System's Phase 3A redevelopment project at Mount Sinai Hospital.

"We are excited to reach commercial and financial close. EllisDon is looking forward to working with Sinai Health System and delivering the project safely and effectively," said Joey Comaeu, Vice President, EllisDon Capital.

The project is a large-scale renovation of several key areas of Mount Sinai Hospital, including:

  • redevelopment of the Critical Care Unit
  • expansion and redesign of the Emergency Department, Operating Rooms and Surgical Services
  • increased Medical/Surgery Inpatient capacity
  • redesign of some of the Ambulatory Care areas
