Councillor Shawn Menard is inviting citizens to attend a virtual public information session via zoom on February 9 at 6:30 p.m.  A hospital representative will present their application and answer questions.  Register here.

The application is for a Central Utility Plant (Phase 3) and the main Hospital building (Phase 4). The main building will consist of approximately 230,000 square metres of gross floor area with a two-storey podium, two towers, and a pavilion  that connects to the “highline” pathway across the top of the four-storey parking garage.

Reimagine Ottawa supporters,
Please find below an excellent follow-up message on the ‘Noons For Now’ Carleton University virtual presentation on 26 January about the planned expansion of the Ottawa (Mega) Civic Hospital into the Central Experimental Farm. Access  links to current and state-of-the-art thinking about why a mega-hospital is not a solution for urban Ottawa and rural and suburban wards, climate-smart healthcare and fixing a system that is broken. Insightful alternatives were discussed that could provide easier and more efficient access to healthcare for Ottawa residents. In sum, all to ensure that the choices we make in health-care are financially sound, forward-thinking and climate smart. The Noons for Now session offered several questions to help in the participation process.
