$1 million in Repairs Coming to Cambridge Memorial Hospital
Province Investing in Renewed Facilities to Deliver High-Quality Health Care
Ontario is continuing to strengthen and support hospitals in $175 million for repairs and upgrades to 131 hospitals this year, to provide patients with high-quality care in a safe and healthy environment.
Last Tuesday, Kathryn McGarry, MPP for Cambridge, was at Cambridge Memorial Hospital, which will receive $978,068 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. At Cambridge Memorial, money is allocated towards upgrading the firefighting sprinkler system.
The 2017 balanced Budget includes a new $7-billion booster shot to health care, building on the commitment made in the 2016 Budget. This investment improves access to care, expand mental health and addiction services, and enhance the experience and recovery of patients.
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.
