The North Island Hospitals Project continues to rack up accolades.

Project spokesperson Tom Sparrow says they’ve been named the Silver Award Winner of the Best Social Infrastructure Project for North America.

The award was presented at the North American P3 event in New York City. This award isn’t the first they’ve won.

Sparrow says it’s a huge honor to be recognized by their peers in North America and across the world.

Sparrow adds the North Island Hospitals Project is very much focused on local communities.

Sparrow adds construction is going well and on schedule for both the Comox Valley and Campbell River hospitals. They’re slated to open on April 30th, 2017.
