Our campus expansion
It has been long journey. 30 years of planning and three years of construction, but we are finally closing in on our destination with the opening of our new Atrium Building in March 2014.

Decades in the making, the new hospital is being built on the hospital’s existing site. It replaces the 160-bed Oak Ridge building and the 20-bed Brébeuf building, offering a larger, more modern space for treatment and care for people with a mental illness who are involved with the justice system. Once complete, the new facility will consolidate Waypoint into a more efficient, integrated campus.

Planning for what would be the largest public infrastructure project in Penetanguishene’s history began in January 2009. After many more months of work, the hospital and and Infrastructure Ontario announced Integrated Team Solutions (ITS) as the preferred proponent selected to design, build, finance and maintain the new building. The ITS consortium represents a joint venture between EllisDon Corporation and Fengate Capital Management Ltd., with EllisDon also providing construction services. The facility was designed by Cannon Design and Honeywell Limited will provide facilities management. National Bank Financial Inc. acted as the financial advisor to ITS.

Waypoint aims to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Gold certification for the design and construction. LEED® standards focus on healthy indoor environments, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and efficient use of energy, water and other resources.
