Ontario Continuing to Connect People to Care, Close to Home

Headwaters Health Care Centre is receiving $6.643 million for extra beds

Dufferin-Caledon— As part of Your Health: A Plan for Connected and Convenient Care, the Ontario government is ensuring patients will continue to have access to high quality care in their community, by investing over $1.18 billion this year to continue funding over 3,500 hospital beds across the province, including Headwaters Health Care Centre (HHCC) in Dufferin-Caledon. HHCC is receiving $6.643 million in permanent ongoing funding to support an additional 13 hospital beds.

Through this ongoing and permanent investment, Ontario is ensuring patients will continue to have access to over 3,500 acute, post-acute and critical beds across the province. This is another step the government is taking to improve access, expand capacity and decrease wait times, building a health care system that better serves patients both now and into the future.

“Our government continues to make critical investments in our hospitals and health care infrastructure to connect more Ontarians to high-quality convenient care,” said Sylvia Jones, MPP for Dufferin-Caledon. “This investment at HHCC will ensure they have the beds they need to continue delivering high quality health care in our community.”

The province continues to work with local hospital partners and Ontario Health to ensure communities have the hospital capacity they need to connect patients to care, close to home.


  • Since 2018, the Ontario government has invested an additional $8.8 billion in the hospital sector, adding over 3,500 acute, post-acute and critical care beds across the province. 
  • Ontario’s investments over the next 10 years will lead to nearly $50 billion in health infrastructure across the province.
  • As of the end of 2022, Ontario approved 50 hospital development projects that will build more than 3,000 new hospital beds in communities across the province over the next 10 years.


“These investments enable us to more effectively manage surges by creating additional capacity in the health system. It is these types of funding initiatives that allow us to maintain a responsive, stable and integrated system of care across the province.”

– Matthew Anderson

President and CEO of Ontario Health

“The permanent funding investment will help us strengthen our ability to meet the needs of a growing and an aging population. We are carefully planning for our future, and rethinking what our hospital can be. These are exciting times for Headwaters and the people we care for.”

President & CEO, Headwaters Health Care Centre
