The $190 Million Health Care Centre opened in June 2008. The new 750,000 square-foot facility includes 500 patient beds, replacing the former Peterborough Civic Hospital and the St. Joseph’s Health Centre. The Hospital services a population in excess of 300,000 that includes four counties. It is one of the region’s largest employers with a full time staff of 2,000, 600 volunteers and 350 physicians. The state-of-the-art building is a 6-storey structure built on the slope of hill on the site of the former Peterborough Civic Hospital. The key to the building’s design was to centralize services and provide easy access of services to patients and staff.
Ontario Electrical Construction provided the complete electrical installation that included the incoming high voltage distribution, 600V switchboards, distribution panels, transformers, 120/208V lighting and receptacle panels, diesel generators, lightning protection, fire alarm, clock, CCTV, nurse call, panic alarm, card access and communication systems.
