Controversial land deal complete for Windsor mega-hospital
Controversial purchase for new hospital closed after five years
The property is located at County Rd. 42 and the 9th Concession. The original purchase of sale was signed in 2015. The hospital said that the deal was closed after all conditions for the purchase were met, including zoning and approval from the provincial government.
