Halton Hospitals to Recieve funding for Repairs, Upgrades

Ontario is continuing to strengthen and support hospitals in Halton with repairs and upgrades to two hospitals this year, to provide patients with high-quality care in a safe and healthy environment. Today, Indira Naidoo-Harris, MPP for Halton, was in Milton to make the announcement. This year, Milton District Hospital and Georgetown Hospital will receive a combined $666,194 to revitalize their 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.

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 will improve access to care, expand mental health and addiction services, and enhance the experience and recovery of patients.

“Georgetown and Milton are rapidly expanding communities with growing health care demands,” Halton MPP Indira Naidoo-Harris said. Milton Hospital is in the final stages of an expansion that will triple its size. It’s scheduled to open October 1, 2017.
