Chart Construction awarded contract for NICU renovation at OSMH

Tuesday, August 09, 2016

(Tuesday, August 9, 2016 - Orillia, ON) – Chart Construction has been awarded the contract to renovate the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) and Paediatric units at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH), the hospital announced today.

Chart will begin construction this month and is scheduled to complete the $2.7 million project in early 2017.  OSMH temporarily relocated the unit to the 4th floor of the hospital in May to clear the way for construction to begin. 

The project will double the size of the unit to approximately 2,200 square feet, enhancing privacy for families while providing much needed elbow room for hospital staff and physicians while caring for patients.   Essential equipment will also be replaced, including incubators, ventilators and cardiac monitors.  

Fully funded through donations to the OSMH Foundation, the project remains approximately $500,000 from its fundraising target.  There are many ways you can help.  To support this important project, contact the Foundation at 705-325-6464 or found@osmh.on.ca.

The OSMH NICU and Paediatrics units provide care to patients throughout North Simcoe and Muskoka.
