New Medical Centre to be Madoc Showpiece
McGuinty Government Supports Madoc Revitalization
Ontario is helping revitalize Madoc and improve access to rural health care by investing in the development of the Tri Area Medical Centre.
The province is investing $138,000 to help replace the existing medical centre with a more modern facility that will better meet the health care needs of the community. This new medical facility will also serve as the centre piece for the revitalization of the business core of Madoc and help entice new businesses to the area.
The funding is part of the Rural Economic Development Program which invests in community-based projects in three priority areas:
- Improved access to health care services
- Revitalized communities and downtowns
- Enhanced skills training
- Since 2003, Ontario has invested $50 million in 158 projects through the Rural Economic Development Program.
- The Tri Area Medical Centre will provide health care services for approximately 7,000 residents and an additional 3,000 in the summer months due to seasonal residents.
“This centre will contribute to the revitalization of downtown Madoc and provide the community with access to high quality health care closer to home. That is a goal our government is very pleased to support.”
“Thanks to the support of the Ontario government, the construction of the new Tri Area Medical Centre will become a reality. This investment will help improve the quality of health care local residents can expect now and in the future.”
