Improving Access to Long-Term Care Spaces Across the Province
Investing in new long-term care beds and upgrading existing beds to modern design is key to Ontario's transformational strategy to end hallway health care and support improved access to high-quality and reliable long-term care for residents.
Through today's announcement, Ontario is allocating almost 1,000 new beds in the regions of Haldimand-Norfolk, Brant, Hamilton and Niagara and upgrading almost 800 existing beds to modern design.
