April 11, 2016 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
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
