Expanded Medical Centre To Be Millbrook Showpiece
McGuinty Government Supports Millbrook Revitalization
Ontario is helping revitalize Millbrook and improve access to rural health care by investing in the expansion of the Millbrook and District Medical Centre.
The province is investing $97,000 to help develop better patient consultation space, accessible washrooms and a secure records management area. The expanded facility will also serve as a vital building block for the revitalization of Millbrook and to 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 $73 million in 220 projects through the Rural Economic Development Program.
- This project will increase the size of the Medical Centre by almost 50 per cent and allow new medical staff to be hired.
“This centre will contribute to the revitalization of downtown Millbrook 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 expansion of the Millbrook and District 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.”
