In Picton, April 26, I announced the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital redevelopment project is moving to Stage 4 of a five-stage capital approvals process. This stage will allow Quinte Health Care to finalize detailed drawings, pre-qualify bidding contractors, tender the project, and pick a preferred contractor. Typically, the stage lasts 18-24 months. The fifth and final step is breaking ground and starting construction.
