Access Prairies Partnership has been selected to build the new Saskatchewan Hospital North Battleford provincial psychiatric facility as a design-build-finance-maintain public-private partnership (P3). The new 188-bed facility will have 32 more beds and an integrated 96-room correctional centre that will provide support for offenders living with mental health issues. This is an innovative approach for delivering mental health care and supports to clients with significant psychiatric rehabilitation needs.Access Prairies Partnership was selected after successfully completing a competitive best value selection process. Access Prairies Partnership includes the following partners as an integrated team:
“Prairie North Health Region is thrilled that replacement of the century-old Saskatchewan Hospital North Battleford is another step closer to reality,” Prairie North Regional Health Authority Vice-President of Primary Health Services including Saskatchewan Hospital North Battleford Vikki Smart said. “We look forward to working with Access Prairies Partnership and with our ministry partners toward the milestone our patients, staff and community are eagerly awaiting – turning of the sod to signal the start of construction on the new mental health facility.”Based on the final bid, SaskBuilds and its external financial advisors determined there was value for money delivering the project using a P3 model. There is value for money when the cost of delivering a project using a P3 model is less than the cost of delivering the same project using a traditional approach. The value for money calculation includes P3-related costs, such as private financing.
