Improving Health Care At Brockville General Hospital

McGuinty Government Providing Families Better Care Closer To Home

Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care

A major redevelopment project at Brockville General Hospital will give people and families in the Brockville area better access to mental health care, rehabilitation and complex continuing care services.

Work is underway for the redevelopment and the expansion project at the hospital's Charles Street site. Expansion includes a new wing with 48 complex continuing care beds, 29 rehabilitation beds and 29 acute mental health beds for patients.

Some of these beds will be transferred from the Garden Street site of Brockville General Hospital and the Brockville Mental Health Centre of the Royal Ottawa Health Care Group. Once complete, patients will be able to have expanded access to emergency and acute care services, plus mental health services at one location at the Charles Street site.

Investing in modern and efficient hospitals that support the needs of our aging and diversifying population is part of Building Together, Ontario's long-term infrastructure plan. Ontario will continue to make significant investments in public infrastructure over the next decade to improve the quality of life for families.
