P3 for Quebec City hospital going nowhere

Hospital administration asks province to drop efforts to fund facility as private-public partnership.

H�tel-Dieu du Qu�bec.by CUPE

April 28, 2008 — The administration at a Quebec City hospital is calling on the province to drop efforts to rebuild a facility as a public private partnership.

That puts them on the same page as the union of CHUQ employees, which has opposed the PPP plan since the beginning.

And it puts plans to renovate the facility into question.

Meanwhile the provincial government — which intervened to refer the project to its PPP ministry — continues to study ways to do the project as a public private partnership.

The union argued that private financing would prove more expensive than conventional borrowing and that the private contractors were vastly underestimating the amount and complexity of the work that needed to be done...
