"Government awarded the contract on October 5 for construction management services for the Dartmouth General Hospital (DGH) expansion and renovation project to PCL Constructors Canada Inc.
The planned expansion and renovations are part of the QEII redevelopment project and include construction of space for 48 beds on the fifth floor, eight operating rooms to replace four existing operating rooms and adding four more, and extensive upgrades to outpatient and diagnostic imaging areas. This is in addition to work already underway on the third and fourth floors.
Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Minister Geoff MacLellan says the Dartmouth General Hospital expansion project is a key part of modernizing the provincial health system and better connecting Nova Scotians with the care they need.
Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2017."
