The province of Ontario says it’s spending $175 million dollars on upgrades and repairs to 131 hospitals this year.
The government says the money will allow hospitals to make critical improvements to their facilities – including upgrades or replacements to roofs, windows, heating and air conditioning systems, fire alarms and back-up generators.
Health and Long-Term Care Minister Eric Hoskins announced the funding at Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital – which will get more than $2.3 million.
The money comes through the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund.
