“The more than $8.3 million investment is welcomed news for our hospitals in Ottawa,” said Dr. Merrilee Fullerton, MPP for Kanata-Carleton and Minister of Children, Community and Social Services. “The province is committed to providing needed infrastructure investments in our health institutions so that they are maintained in a good state of repair. It’s money well spent to ensure Ontarians can continue to depend on well-maintained healthcare facilities.”  

Ontario is providing $175 million to hospitals through the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund and over $7.6 million to community health service providers through the Community Infrastructure Renewal Fund. This funding from the province allows its health care system partners to address urgent infrastructure renewal needs such as upgrades or replacements of roofs, windows, security systems, fire alarms and back-up generators.

“Our government is making investments to ensure Ontario’s hospitals and community health infrastructure continue to be state-of-the-art facilities,” said Sylvia Jones, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health. “This funding will also help build the capacity we need to end hallway health care and ensure people continue to receive world-class care.”
