Headwaters Health Care Centre Receives Provincial Funding

(Dufferin-Caledon) Sylvia Jones, MPP Dufferin-Caledon is very pleased to announce that Headwaters Health Care Centre is receiving $692,181 in funding through the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund.

“The health and safety of patients and families is a priority for our government,” said MPP Jones. “That is why we must make the necessary investments in our hospitals now, to ensure we have the facilities needed to continue to provide excellent quality care to patients. This funding will help ensure that Headwaters is able to make the necessary improvements so patients and families continue to have access to reliable, quality care they expect and deserve.”

“Our community has great pride in Headwaters Health Care Centre and citizens have told us they want us to continue to strengthen their community hospital. This generous investment by our government, to support an emergency generator, will enable us to ensure that we safeguard the availability of service to our community during an emergency,” said Stacey Daub, President and CEO of Headwaters Health Care Centre.

The government is moving forward quickly to address challenges facing the health care system as it develops a long-term transformational health care strategy to end hallway health care. As this important work continues, this funding will allow hospitals to address urgent issues, including upgrades or replacements of roofs, windows, heating and air conditioning systems, fire alarms and back-up generators.

“Our government is investing in essential health care projects to ensure the people of Ontario will have health care services they can depend on now and for future generations,” said Deputy Premier and Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, Christine Elliott. “We will continue to listen to the patients and the people who plan and work on the frontlines. Together, we will create a health care system that works for the people of Ontario.”
