Dan Ford acted as counsel to TD Bank as lead arranger and agent on behalf of a syndicate of lenders to PCL Constructors Canada, the successful proponent for the C$142 million Kingston General Hospital PPP project to build and finance the redevelopment of the hospital in Kingston, Ontario.

Acute Mental Health: A new inpatient mental health unit was constructed to provide a safe treatment setting for acutely ill patients
Cancer Centre: The Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario was expanded from 54,445 square feet to 91,085 square feet and renovated to include the addition of two new radiation bunkers, 24 chemotherapy treatment chairs, and a specialized clinic area for paediatric patients
In-Centre Dialysis: A new, expanded 40-station in-centre Kidney Dialysis Unit was constructed to provide patients with enhanced comfort and privacy
Pediatrics: A new 25-bed unit was provided for inpatient paediatrics
Medical-Surgical: A new unit was provided for 32 medical-surgical beds, consisting of more single and isolation rooms
