The Ontario government is investing $3,205,112 this year to support critical upgrades and repairs at hospitals and community health service providers in Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound. This funding is part of the government’s investment of over $182 million provided through the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund and the Community Infrastructure Renewal Fund to 131 hospitals and 65 community health service providers across the province.
- Grey Bruce Health Services – $1,808,269
- Hanover and District Hospital – $592,926
- South Bruce Grey Health Centre – $692,042
- South East Grey Community Health Centre – $111,875
“These investments in our healthcare infrastructure for maintenance of facilities is so important for the ongoing quality of care. I am very pleased that our Grey Bruce community hospitals and health centre are key players in this funding announcement,” said Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Rick Byers.
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.”
