Concordia Hospital Surgery Expansion

Project Description

All demolition work had to be done during regular working hours and all construction debris removed at the end of each workday. Debris was placed in covered containers or covered with moistened sheets before being removed from the construction area to minimize exposure of patients and environment.

CPI coordinated with each Facility ICP during the removal of demolition debris to arrange safe removal access through patient occupied areas. This was done a minimum of 48 hours ahead of the work start. CPI also arranged to have all materials moved in or out during non-regular working hours to minimize disruption. Due to limited space on site, all materials were staged within the construction area. CPI used just-in-time delivery and a rigid adherence to schedule to ensure hospital operations were not affected.

Concordia Hospital is Manitoba’s leading site for joint replacement surgeries, including hip and knee, and a significant number of patients have been affected as staff and other resources were focused on the pandemic response. The province will support the expansion of the orthopedic surgery program to add a fifth operating room, which includes recruiting an orthopedic surgeon, adding four inpatient beds and investing in anesthesia staff. These improvements are expected to be in place by the end of the year and will increase capacity by up to 1,000 surgeries per year.

On March 30, the provincial diagnostic and surgical recovery task force announced that it would hire a new surgeon for the new room, along with investing in anesthesia staff and four inpatient beds, which should increase joint replacement surgery capacity by up to 1,000 cases a year.
