Request for Proposals Closes for West Lincoln Memorial Hospital Rebuild Project: Hamilton Health Sciences, Infrastructure Ontario evaluating submissions

HAMILTON, ON – The Request for Proposals (RFP) stage has closed for teams to submit their bids to design, build and finance the West Lincoln Memorial Hospital (WLMH) redevelopment project.

Following a fair, open and transparent Request for Qualifications process, three teams – Amico Sacyr Alliance, EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare and Pomerleau Healthcare Partners – were shortlisted and invited to respond to an RFP in June 2021. All three teams submitted their proposals by today’s deadline.

Over the next several months, Hamilton Health Sciences and Infrastructure Ontario will evaluate the submissions. A successful proponent is expected to be announced in the coming months. A fairness monitor is overseeing the entire procurement process.


“This is a very exciting moment in the history of West Lincoln Memorial Hospital. We thank all three teams for participating in this process and sharing their visions for the new hospital. We look forward to working with our partners at Infrastructure Ontario to select the team which will bring this important piece of health infrastructure to life.”

Kelly Campbell, VP, Corporate Services and Capital Development, Hamilton Health Sciences


“This is yet another step closer to the shovels going in the ground and the doors opening on the new West Niagara hospital that we have all been working towards. The closing of the RFP means that we will have a builder for this exciting facility very soon, which is great news for a community that has been working towards this day for so long. I know that we are all looking forward to the selection of the successful bidder in the coming weeks and months, as we rapidly approach the start of construction. My thanks goes to all the staff at HHS, and so many community activists who have worked to make this dream a reality.”

Sam Oosterhoff, MPP – Niagara West
