The Construction Liaison Committee reports to MGH's Executive Committee

Purpose of the Construction liaison committee

As Michael Garron Hospital (MGH) initiates implementation of the first phase (New Patient Care Centre Project) of its long-term plan to redevelop the Hospital site, it is committed to ongoing and meaningful dialogue with local residents and stakeholders regarding issues related to construction progress and activities. This committee will provide a communication vehicle between local residents, stakeholders and the Hospital with respect to construction issues.

construction liaison Committee Structure

MGH has had a long established Neighbourhood Advisory Committee which has met regularly to provide a communication vehicle between local residents and the Hospital with respect to physical facilities issues. With the initiation of the redevelopment project, the Neighbourhood Advisory Committee will transition into the Construction Liaison Committee.

Once MGH’s redevelopment project is complete, the Construction Liaison Committee will transition back into the Neighbourhood Advisory Committee.
