Ontario is investing in 4 community health facilities in our local communities to help people get high-quality care close to home, in a safe, healthy and accessible environment.
Ted McMeekin MPP for Ancaster Dundas Flamborough Westdale announced funding today for local community health service providers to repair and upgrade their facilities, making them more accessible and enhancing quality of care.
Through the Community Infrastructure Renewal Fund the province is investing a total of $238,100 in local community facilities.
This fund is supporting 68 community health service providers across the province to support crucial infrastructure projects, including replacements to roofs, windows, heating and air conditioning systems, fire alarms and back-up generators.
Ontario is increasing access to care, reducing wait times and improving the patient experience through its Patients First: Action Plan for Health Care and OHIP+: Children and Youth Pharmacare – protecting health care today and into the future.
“By investing in community health infrastructure, we will help ensure that community health organizations can keep their facilities in a good state of repair, make them accessible, and continue to provide high-quality care, close to home.”
— Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care
“Our local community depends upon so many health and mental health services. Ensuring that facilities which house these programs are safe and intact is vital and this funding ensures this happens. Good work!”
-Ted McMeekin MPP Ancaster Dundas Flamborough Westdale
“Our community-based health service providers are an integral part of local health systems. This funding will assist these organizations in making much needed facility repairs and upgrades to ensure they can stay focused on what they do best – caring for the people they serve.”
– Janine van den Heuvel, Board Chair, HNHB LHIN
