Ontario Investing in Health Care Infrastructure Upgrades and Repairs in Oxford

Modernizing Health Care Infrastructure to Support Safe and High-Quality Care for Patients

[WOODSTOCK] The Ontario government is investing $1.19 million this year to support critical health care infrastructure upgrades, repairs and maintenance in Oxford.

This funding is part of the government’s $182.6 million investment provided through the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund and the Community Infrastructure Renewal Fund. It will ensure that patients can continue to access the care they need in safe, comfortable environments and that the local health care system is prepared to respond to any scenario as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve.

Investments include:

  • Alexandra Hospital will receive $830,994
  • Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital will receive $344,072
  • Woodstock General Hospital Trust will receive $18,000

“I’m happy to see this important investment in our hospitals in Oxford,” said Ernie Hardeman, MPP for Oxford. “This funding from the province allows our health care system partners to address urgent infrastructure renewal needs such as upgrades or replacements of roofs, windows, security systems, fire alarms and back-up generators.”

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

“Upgrading and maintaining hospitals and community health infrastructure is one more way our government is ensuring Ontarians receive the exceptional care when they need it and closer to home,” said Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health.
