OZZ Electric Inc. was awarded ownership of the electrical contracting and data communication component of the two phases for this project. This was a build finance project through Infrastructure Ontario, consisting of 425,000 square feet of new construction and 35,000 square feet of renovation to the existing hospital. This new wing, called the New Juravinski Hospital, is equipped with the latest medical technology. The project commenced in the fall of 2008 and was completed in the summer of 2012.
