The Ontario government said it is spending billions of dollars to build a new hospital in Mississauga and expand another in Toronto. Premier Doug Ford says that the two projects will add more than 500 hospital beds to the province. This is a part of a pre-pandemic pledge to put an end to “hallway medicine” which has increased due to COVID-19.
The Mississauga Hospital and the Queensway Health Centre are part of the Trillium Health Partners. And the government said it is receiving more than $27 million in extra operational funding this fiscal year.
The government said the demand for health care at Trillium Health Partners is calculated to expand to seven times that at the average Ontario hospital over the next 20 years due to Peel Region’s growing population. The announcement made on Wednesday displayed a plan to spend $30 billion over 10 years on increasing hospital capacity.
