Foundation work has begun on the new South Niagara Hospital.
Construction on the new 1.3-million-square-foot hospital at the corner of Montrose and Biggar roads in Niagara Falls began last spring when the City of Niagara Falls and Niagara Region undertook road work at the site.
Construction is expected to take approximately five years, with the hospital – which will replace the aging Greater Niagara General site of Niagara Health – coming on stream in 2028.
The foundation work, which is being completed by EllisDon Infrastructure Healthcare, involves driving steel piles into the bedrock at the site that will provide the structural support needed for the building foundation.
The work is expected to take approximately three months, to be completed at the end of January 2024.
