Pre-planning to begin soon on new Civic Campus: The Ottawa Hospital commissions engagement and consultations framework

April 7, 2017 – The construction of a new Civic Campus represents a once-in-a-century opportunity to address the health needs of generations to come in Ottawa and throughout the Champlain LHIN. As one of the most significant building projects in the City and province’s history, the new Civic Campus will represent 21st-century health care in a modern facility.

With support from all three levels of government to move forward on the Sir John Carling site, planning for the new Civic campus will reflect the health care needs of our community. It will also integrate work with the surrounding communities and the public at large on issues related to building design, parking, greenspace, public transit and bike paths.

The new Civic Campus will serve over one million people in our region with compassionate, patient-centered care. Our innovative research institute will make it a place of firsts in discovery and care.

The design of the campus will also represent the views and input of the citizens of Ottawa and eastern Ontario through a comprehensive plan of consultation and engagement.

The Ottawa Hospital will develop an integrated approach and coordinate a way forward to reach out to our community. Through this process, a third party will interview hospital partners, community leaders, interest groups, city councillors, and other officials in the municipal, provincial and federal levels of government.

The resulting consultation and engagement plan will be guided by Ontario’s Public Engagement Framework to ensure that collaboration with stakeholders and the community is meaningful, inclusive and transparent. The plan will also identify consultation requirements and priorities and propose a framework that will define how and when The Ottawa Hospital will work with the public, including patients and its staff. The plan will be grounded in an understanding of the requirements and obligations of all levels of governments in this process.

The engagement plan will be ready by early summer. It will guide and shape how we work with all community partners over the next decade as we build a modern 21st century facility for generations to come.
