February 8, 2021: The All Nations Hospital Project Steering Committee met recently to review planning elements which will form the Stage 1 submission to the Province of Ontario, Ministry of Health (the project’s major funder) including:

1. Technical Building Assessment
Section summarizes the structural, mechanical, electrical state of each LWDH building (the hospital, St. Joseph’s Health Centre, old St. Joseph’s hospital and Powerhouse/Laundry).

2. Existing Building and Site Plans
Three (3) potential development options (as required by the Province) including two different options on the current site and one option on a new site have been analyzed in this section in terms of size, zoning, services, topography and cultural / community fit.

3. Master Building Plan
This section explores what a new hospital and campus could look like on each of the narrowed two potential sites.

These items were recommended by the Steering Committee and will move on for Board of Directors approval. The Stage 1 submission is expected to be presented to the Province in April 2021.

The next meeting of the Steering Committee in March will focus on recommending a site option.

The LWDH executive team, #AllNationsHospitalProject consultants, Kenora Chiefs Advisory reps and All Nations Health Partners reps took some time recently to review potential sites for the new hospital with local elders. The September All Nations Hospital Project Steering Committee press release details how an expansive list of potential sites for the new hospital was short-listed to three.

For the safety of all, the unfortunate yet necessary decision was made in early March 2020 to suspend all upcoming in-person public forums, group engagement sessions and presentations related to the All Nations Hospital  Project due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the public engagement phase has continued via online surveys (the next survey, focused on site, is coming soon!), virtual engagement sessions and as always, all residents in the Kenora area including surrounding communities and summer residents who wish to share their vision for the new hospital are invited to contact either of the Community Project Planners (Charlene Kissick at 807-464-1941 / This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or Kathy Kishiqueb at 807-276-8956 / This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
 
Virtual engagement sessions can be completely flexible in terms of time and date and are not limited to any size.  We are currently using GoToMeeting technology and have had excellent audio and video in all sessions so far.  Sessions include a presentation on the project to-date and the opportunity for participants to share their vision for the new hospital. 
 
If you are interested in hosting a virtual engagement session or have ideas of how to reach certain target groups please reach out today.
