Ontario Investing in New Long-Term Care Beds

Description: On October 9, Dr. Merrilee Fullerton, Minister of Long-Term Care, was joined by Effie Triantafilopoulos, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Long-Term Care; Kinga Surma, MPP for Etobicoke Centre; and Christine Hogarth, MPP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore, at Runnymede Healthcare Centre to announce that the government is re-affirming its commitment to allocate 200 new long-term care beds to the Runnymede Long-Term Care Home project in Toronto. The government is taking swift action and delivering on its commitment to end hallway health care by creating and redeveloping long-term care beds in communities across Ontario. These new beds at Runnymede HC will help take pressure off hospitals, allow doctors and nurses to work more efficiently, and provide better, faster health care for families and patients in the City of Toronto. The government is continuing to work with the long-term care sector to ensure the system is responsive to the needs of Ontarians by increasing access to appropriate care and reducing waitlists, while also maintaining patient safety and ensuring high standards of care.
