The Ontario government has announced that it is investing $2,768,071 to support critical infrastructure upgrades and repairs at hospitals across Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound and Huron-Bruce through the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund (HIRF).

Locally, the following hospital corporations will receive funding for 2024-25:

  • $1,930,962 - Brightshores Health Systems
  • $ 218,900 - Hanover & District Hospital
  • $ 618,209 - South Bruce Grey Health Ctr

“Our government recognizes the important role hospitals have in the delivery of rural health care and I’m pleased that the hospital infrastructure funding has been secured in continued support," said Lisa Thompson, MPP for Huron-Bruce.

“The government's investment of over $2.7 million will help address the need for upgrades and repairs at our local hospitals," said Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Rick Byers. "Upgrading roofs, windows, security and fire alarm systems will ensure that people receive excellent care in safe, modern facilities."

“Under the leadership of Premier Ford, our government is making record investments in the health care system to ensure people are able to access care at state-of-the-art hospitals and community health providers,” said Sylvia Jones, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health. “This year our government is investing an additional $20 million to allow facilities to modernize and make critical upgrades, ensuring people can connect to the care they need, when they need it, close to home.”

Across the province, 129 hospitals and 58 community health care facilities are receiving a total of $228 million through HIRF in 2024/25.

Through Your Health: A Plan For Connected and Convenient Care, the province is taking action to expand and modernize Ontario’s hospitals to ensure patients and their families receive the right care, in the right place, for years to come.

 


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
