THREE QUALIFIED BIDDERS PROCEEDING TO RFP FOR SWIFT CURRENT LONG-TERM CARE FACILITY

Three qualified teams have been shortlisted to participate in the next stage of the competitive selection process to build the new 225 bed long-term care facility in Swift Current.  The new facility will create a home-like atmosphere for residents and incorporate LEAN operational best practices and health care principles and efficiencies.

Five teams responded to the Cypress Regional Health Authority Request for Qualifications, which closed October 9, 2013.  After evaluating the responses, three teams have been invited to move forward to the Request for Proposal stage:

  • Integrated Team Solutions 
  • Plenary Group
  • Willow Healthcare Partners

The project is a design-build-finance-maintain public-private partnership (P3) procurement model and a proponent is expected to be selected by spring 2014.  Construction of the new long-term care facility is expected to be underway in summer 2014 with completion targeted for spring 2016.

“We are impressed by the number, experience, and qualifications of the teams that expressed an interest in the project and what this says about the market’s interest in doing business in Saskatchewan,” Minister responsible for SaskBuilds Don McMorris said.  “We believe that this process will lead to some interesting and bold innovations in design, which will be a considerable win for the community.  Moving forward with a Request for Proposal is the next important step in the delivery of a new long-term care facility for the community of Swift Current.”
 
“We are excited to continue on schedule as we move toward the next phase of the procurement process and one step closer to the start of construction of this new facility,” Cypress Regional Health Authority Chairperson Tyler Bragg said.  “The calibre and expertise of the proponent teams that have expressed interest in this project is a positive sign, and their experience with similar projects is a welcome qualification.”

The long-term care facility will be built on a parcel of land owned by the Cypress Regional Health Authority that is adjacent to the regional hospital. 

The Cypress Regional Health Authority will maintain full ownership of the facility and will operate all aspects of the direct care provided within the facility.  Existing health region staff will provide services for residents and maintain the provincial standards and guidelines that have been set for long-term care programs and services within the province.
The cost of the facility will be determined through the competitive process.
