Wait times for surgeries and diagnostic procedures are getting shorter across Ontario, resulting in patients spending less time waiting and accessing treatment sooner.
Great progress has been made in reducing wait times for key procedures. In June 2013:
This year, the government is investing $75.8 million across the province to support health care providers in continuing to reduce wait times and to provide more than 6,800 additional surgical procedures and more than 220,000 hours for MRI and CT scans.
Ensuring people across the province have faster access to surgical and diagnostic procedures is part of the government's Action Plan for Health Care helping deliver the right care at the right time and in the right place.
