Ontario Investing $12 Billion to Build New Hospitals

As part of the 2016 budget, Ontario plans to invest $12 billion over 10 years in its hospitals to continue building a modern healthcare infrastructure. The Canadian province is also providing $50 million in new annual funding to help hospitals keep their facilities in good repair.

These healthcare infrastructure investments are helping expand access to high-quality care so patients receive the care they need in a safe and healthy environment. Across the province, approximately 35 major hospital projects are under construction or in various stages of planning.

Examples of projects being planned or already underway include:

• Mackenzie Health’s new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital project

• New Providence Care Hospital in Kingston

• Renovation of acute and long-term care beds at the Atikokan General Hospital

• Expansion and redevelopment at Cambridge Memorial Hospital
