Ontario is continuing to strengthen and support hospitals across Ontario with repairs and upgrades to 131 hospitals this year, to provide patients with high-quality care in a safe and healthy environment.
Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, was joined by Ann Hoggarth, MPP for Barrie, today at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital, which will receive over $2.3 million this year to revitalize its facilities.
Funding from the province allows hospitals to make critical improvements to their facilities, including upgrades or replacements to roofs, windows, heating and air conditioning systems, fire alarms and back-up generators.
This investment will improve access to care, expand mental health and addiction services, and enhance the experience and recovery of patients.
HIRF investments in other hospitals in the area include: more than $85,000 for Collingwood General and Marine Hospital; more than $570,000 for Georgian Bay General Hospital; more than $1.2 million for Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare; $2.6 million for Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre; and more than $680,000 for Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care.
