  • Redevelopment Project

Saint Thomas Elgin General Hospital (STEGH) is undertaking The Great Expansion, its largest construction project since the facility was originally built in 1954.  A new three story tower will sit on its northwest corner of the current location to house a new Emergency Department, Surgical Suite, Sterile Processing Department, Mental Health and Addiction Services. 

The Emergency Department will be doubling its current size and will have 2 trauma rooms, plus 15 exam rooms.  Surgery Suite will have four operating theaters, one endoscopy procedure room, plus all new recovery and pre-op bays. Sterile Processing Department will get new processing equipment to handle 9000 surgical cases annually.  The Mental Health unit has inpatient (15 beds) and outpatient components, and will replace the interim unit in the existing hospital. 

Korbel Associates' service began in September 2013, with a complete inventory of all departments involved in the project.  On-site user group meetings followed and Design Development was complete by June 2014.  We formatted our reports to fit Ontario's Ministry of Health requirements.  Korbel coordinated our 3D BIM equipment placements with both architects in the joint venture - Kahler Slater of Milwaukee, and Montgomery Sisam of Toronto.  Korbel Associates has been retained for the first phase of procurement, preparing bid specifications for the major equipment packages.  The project is being delivered under the Build-Finance model; the facility is expected to open in 2017.
