After a week of political drama and head-spinning developments, the Civic hospital has a new home: on the former site of the Sir John Carling building at the eastern edge of the Experimental Farm.

Hospital officials say they would like to see the new $2-billion super hospital open on the site by 2026.

While the process hasn’t been finalized, Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly put her stamp of approval on the site Friday, saying in a statement she would request federal officials “make all the necessary preparations to make this land available as the future location” of a new Civic hospital.
