New Way To Serve Health Care

“To ensure that CPHC patients, clients and families could have one central location to access a full spectrum of health care services made perfect sense,” said Graham Bird, GBA president.  “This new facility was an idea whose time had come, and we couldn’t be more honoured to be part of the growth.”

The board and management of CPHC had a solid understanding of what was needed in primary health services for the region when they brought GBA on to help make it happen.  GBA managed the planning, design, site excavation, demolition and construction of the new facility – and ensured the budget was followed and all specifications were met.

Acting as the liaison between provincial and federal funders, along with the City of Brockville, Ministry of Transportation and the Cataraqui Regional Conservation Authority, GBA ensured that the stream of critical decisions and approvals were done on time in order for the facility to open in October 2013.

The result is the successful amalgamation of seven previous sites all brought under one new roof with state-of-the art amenities.  The success of this project has given new impetus to plan and work towards important future phases for the site, which will enable the Centre of Excellence to have an even greater impact on the community and surrounding areas.

“Ruth Kitson and her board members have much to be proud of,” Graham Bird added. “The tenacity of this group, the vision and the determination to do the right thing for the communities of Brockville and the tri-counties is an exemplary act of public service.  The GBA team is very proud to have shared in the CPHC achievement.”
