TORONTO , June 26, 2013 /CNW/ - The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (CCPPP) congratulates the Government of Ontario, Bridgepoint Active Healthcare and Plenary Health on the official opening of the new Bridgepoint Hospital in Toronto .

Using Ontario's Alternative Financing and Procurement (AFP) model, the hospital was designed, constructed, financed and will be maintained under a 30-year agreement with Plenary Health, a consortium of design, construction, finance and facility management companies.

The new 464-bed hospital integrates patient care, research and teaching, extensive rehabilitation supports and several community-focused spaces, including a rooftop garden, a library and an auditorium. A unique feature of the project is the location of Bridgepoint's administrative building in the historic Don Jail, which has been restored and renovated.

Bridgepoint Hospital is one of 75 hospital projects currently in procurement, under construction or in operation across the country that are using the public-private partnership (P3) or the AFP model to deliver on-time, on-budget public infrastructure to Canadians.
