Citizens for an Accountable Mega-Hospital Planning Process (CAMPP) is a grassroots citizens group that formed in 2014 to ensure:
- all voices are heard and counted in the planning of Windsor-Essex’s new hospital
- decision-making be financially, socially and environmentally responsible sound urban planning principles are followed.
Supporters include thousands of Windsor-Essex residents. They represent a broad range of backgrounds and all socio-economic levels.
The $2 Billion Hospital Plan
$1.7 billion ($1000/sq. ft) for the new hospital. $385M more for satellite facilities
- A P3-financed hospital on County Road 42, 13km from downtown Windsor, to replace the existing campuses (“Met” and “Ouellette”) of Windsor Regional Hospital (“WRH”). It will serve as the community’s only full service acute care hospital
- Demolition of Met & Ouellette, including the $17M Cancer Centre built in 2001
- An Urgent Care Centre to serve downtown Windsor residents on the former Grace Hospital site. Doors to close to the public at 10pm daily
- Transfer of 60 mental health beds from downtown Windsor to Tayfour Campus, which offers services in mental health & addictions, rehabilitative and palliative care
- No additional ALC, Long Term Care or hospital bed capacity to address current bottlenecks
- Outpatient mental health, addictions and chronic disease management services on the former Ouellette site. No overnight services will remain downtown
Zoning approval of the hospital on County Road 42 is the catalyst for a concurrently approved 400 hectare subdivision south of Windsor Airport.
