Three Teams Proceed to RFP For North Battleford Project

Released on October 7, 2014

Three qualified teams will move forward to participate in the next stage of the competitive selection process to build the new Saskatchewan Hospital North Battleford – Integrated Correctional Facility.  The new facility will include a 188-bed replacement for the existing 156-bed Saskatchewan Hospital North Battleford and a 96-room correctional facility.

Three teams responded to the Province’s Request for Qualifications, which closed July 15, 2014.  After evaluating the responses, the teams have been invited to move forward to the Request for Proposal stage:
  • Access Prairies Partnership;
  • Integrated Team Solutions; and
  • Plenary Health North Battleford LP.
 “We are pleased with the qualifications and level of experience of the three teams that expressed an interest in the project,” SaskBuilds Minister Gordon Wyant said.  “This is a unique project and the P3 model will deliver savings for taxpayers as well as additional value through innovations in design that couldn’t be achieved through a traditional approach.  Moving forward with a Request for Proposal is the next step in the delivery of this very important facility.”

“This is an exciting step forward for the hospital project,” Health Minister Dustin Duncan said.  “The new facility will better meet the needs of individuals with mental health issues.”

“This facility is an important addition to the province’s ability to provide programming to offenders with mental health issues,” Corrections and Policing Minister Christine Tell.  “We are happy to be able to draw from a pool of skilled and experienced teams like these, and look forward to making a decision on this project.”

“This is great news for the community and an important step in delivering a new facility that will better meet the needs of people with mental health issues,” Prairie North Regional Health Authority CEO David Fan said.  “I want to thank our patient and family representatives as well as the staff for their input in the design process.  The new integrated facility will help ensure patients receive the care and support they need in a modern environment.”

The the new integrated facility will be built on the existing hospital grounds near the current hospital building, minimizing disruption to patients during construction.  Programming and treatment for the two populations will be separate.
The project is a design-build-finance-maintain public-private partnership (P3) procurement model and a proponent is expected to be selected by summer 2015.  Construction of the new facility is expected to begin in summer 2015 with completion targeted for summer 2018. 

The cost of the facility will be determined through the competitive process.
