"Our government is creating a 21st century long-term care system that is resident-centred and builds capacity and access for residents and caregivers across Ontario," said Minister Fullerton. "We want to ensure that Ontarians get the care they need when they need it and investing in more long-term care spaces across the province is a key part of our transformational strategy to end hallway health care."
These new beds will help take pressure off hospitals, allow doctors and nurses to work more efficiently and provide better, faster health care for families and patients in the City of Toronto. ■
