WOODSTOCK — The Ontario government is investing $2,591,632 this year to support critical upgrades and repairs at hospitals and community health service providers in Oxford. This funding is part of the government’s investment of over $182 million provided through the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund and the Community Infrastructure Renewal Fund to 131 hospitals and 65 community health service providers across the province.

Investments include:

  • Alexandra Hospital – $2,252,742
  • Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital – $338,620

“I’m pleased to see this funding for hospitals in Oxford,” said Ernie Hardeman, MPP for Oxford. “This funding allows our health care system partners to address urgent infrastructure renewal needs, which is part of the plan to build a stronger, more convenient and connected health care system.”

“We are very grateful for the funding that we have received this year to support our hospital infrastructure improvements,” said Nadia Facca, President and CEO of Alexandra and Tillsonburg hospitals. “At Alexandra Hospital, Ingersoll, we have installed two new generators and also have been able to modernize our service elevator. At Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital, we have been able to modernize the elevators, work on our roof, replace our windows and our dock.”

Ontario is providing $175 million to hospitals through the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund and over $7.6 million to community health service providers through the Community Infrastructure Renewal Fund.
