Clarification: In our original release, we indicated that the hospital would be receiving $3.3M. Although the hospital will be receiving the full amount, a percentage of that will be provided in the following fiscal year and was included to assist the hospital with future planning. Rouge Valley Centenary will be receiving $2.3M in fiscal year 2015/16.
Ontario is renewing hospital infrastructure in Scarborough-Guildwood to ensure patients get the care they need.
Through the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund, the province is investing $3,398,238 for infrastructure upgrades to the Rouge Valley Health System- Centenary Campus. The province’s infrastructure funding helps address critical infrastructure needs such as:
In the 2015 Budget, the government committed to providing more than $11 billion in hospital capital grants over 10 years, including grants administered through the HIRF. This funding is part of the largest infrastructure investment in Ontario’s history — more than $130 billion over 10 years. This investment is helping connect regions, develop new economic opportunities and improve quality of life for Ontarians by supporting infrastructure projects in cities, towns, and rural and remote communities across the province.
Upgrading health-care infrastructure is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is buildingOntario up by investing in people's talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario's history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure retirement savings plan.
“Through this investment in hospital infrastructure, we are ensuring that patients have access to care in spaces that are safe, healthy and comfortable. These projects make a real, positive difference in the healing environment, complementing the high-quality care patients receive in Ontario hospitals.”
― Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care
“The government of Ontario’s announcement to assist the Rouge Valley Health System, Centenary site is great news for the community of Scarborough-Guildwood. Projects will address minor yet critical infrastructure upgrades to the hospital. This investment in hospital infrastructure will provide patients with better access to quality care for Scarborough residents. These are the necessary and progressive investments that will help to build Ontario up and to make Scarborough-Guildwood the best place to live, work, raise a family and grow old.”
― Mitzie Hunter, MPP
“These investments will allow our hospitals to improve the quality and functionality of their facilities so that when Central East LHIN residents receive acute care services they are delivered in an environment that enables the staff to deliver the best care possible.”
― Deborah Hammons, Chief Executive Officer, CentralEast LHIN
“We thank the ministry and MPP Hunter for recognizing the need for infrastructure renewal at Rouge Valley Centenary. Over the years we have been able to renew and modernize our fire protection system, chillers, roofing, electrical distribution and a host of other needs at the hospital. This 2015/16 ministry allocation, for which we are very appreciative, will be applied toward several critically needed items at the hospital, such as: operating room air handling systems; air handling distribution system; fuel oil distribution; and masonry repairs.”
