Queensway Carleton Hospital Breaks Ground On Expansion Project
McGuinty Government Improving Access To Hospital Services In Ottawa
The project includes expansion of the operating rooms, ambulatory care, diagnostic imaging, cardiopulmonary, outpatient rehabilitation, lab, as well as a 15-station dialysis unit. The expansion project is expected to be completed and ready for patients in 2014.
During the renovation and construction phases, the project is expected to create hundreds of spin-off jobs and stimulate economic development that will benefit everyone in the region.
Today's announcement is part of the government's Open Ontario Plan to provide more access to health care services while improving quality and accountability for patients.
- The number of operating rooms will expand to 10 from the current seven suites.
- The 15-station dialysis unit will serve about 90 patients.
- The province has committed up to $100,835,414 towards the expansion project.
“Our government is modernizing hospitals and providing access to quality health care. This project will improve the quality of care hospital staff delivers while allowing the hospital to meet demand for patient services.”
“By investing in the redevelopment, renewal and expansion of hospital infrastructure, the McGuinty government is meeting the needs of Ottawa now and for generations to come.”
