Development Management Consultant Retained to Move Community Campus of Care Project Forward

Posted On: Saturday, February 5, 2022

The Town of The Blue Mountains is pleased to announce that SHS Consulting has been retained as the Development Management Consultant to help guide the Community Campus of Care project forward.

Development Management Consultant Retained to Move Community Campus of Care Project Forward

SHS Consulting will be responsible for working with the Town’s 125 Peel Street Task Force and Council to source a private sector partner or partners to develop, own, manage, operate, and maintain the various components of the Community Campus of Care. SHS Consulting and the Town will create a pre-qualification process to attract and qualify developers and long-term care providers. Once pre-qualified, the shortlisted providers will be invited to move on to the final request-for-proposal that will be issued later in 2022.

The Community Campus of Care project utilizes the provisional 160 Long Term Care beds recently allocated by the Ministry of Long Term Care to the Town of Blue Mountains, and the property owned by the Town at 125 Peel Street, which the Town is working to make available.  

SHS Consulting is a leading expert in developing Community Campus of Care projects throughout Canada. Notably, SHS Consulting has created development plans for the County of Wellington (Wellington Terrace Campus of Care), the County of Simcoe (Simcoe Manor Campus of Care), the Region of York (Newmarket Health Centre Campus of Care) and the County of Grey (Rockwood Terrace Campus of Care). In addition, SHS Consulting has strong local knowledge of The Blue Mountains through their ongoing work with The Blue Mountains Attainable Housing Corporation.

“The Town looks forward to working with the SHS Consulting Team as we move forward with creating a blueprint for the proposed Community Campus of Care Project,” explained Councillor and Council Representative for the 125 Peel Street Task Force, Andrea Matrosovs. “The focus for this initial stage will involve a two-step competitive pre-qualification and request-for-proposal process to evaluate and select the successful proponent to design, develop, construct and operate the Long Term Care Facility and Community Campus of Care.”

About the Community Campus of Care

The Community Campus of Care project is an innovative and unique collaboration between the Town of The Blue Mountains and the Province of Ontario. The proposed Community Campus of Care is expected to feature a 160-bed long-term care facility, retirement living accommodation focused on healthy seniors’ living, and a variety of attainable housing units and dwellings to support the staff working at the Community Campus of Care. The Community Campus of Care is proposed to be built on Town-owned lands located at 125 Peel Street in Thornbury. Purchased last year, the 32-acre property has been long considered a key strategic property of interest by the Town with its proximity to the Tomahawk Recreation Complex providing future opportunities for both properties. In addition, this acquisition will provide the Town with an increased level of development control over the Highway 26 corridor.

The Town of The Blue Mountains is expected to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) for proponents interested in developing and operating the different components of the campus, including the long-term care home, on municipally-owned land in 2022. Construction is expected to start by summer 2024, and the home is expected to open by the end of 2026.
