The firm is making use of its international experience in both hospital construction and finance infrastructure concessions in the development of what will be one of the largest hospitals in the world: the new Centre Hospitalier de l´Université de Montréal (CHUM) in Quebec, Canada. The project is being constructed through a public-private partnership (PPP).
OHL USA’s healthcare clients in the United States include Baptist Health South Florida, South Miami Hospital, Miami Children’s Hospital, Boca Raton Regional Hospital, and Mercy Hospital and Mount Sinai, in Miami, just to name a few.
