Stronger Hospitals for Better Care in York Region
Ontario is investing an additional $21.1 million in Mackenzie Health. This is part of the province’s commitment to invest an additional $822 million investment in Ontario hospitals in 2018/19- an increase of 4.6 per cent. On March 23, 2018, MPP Steven Del Duca and MPP Reza Moridi, along with President and CEO of Mackenzie Health, Altaf Stationwala, were at the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital site to explain how this major increase in hospital funding will provide better access to care, reduce wait times, address capacity issues and better meet the needs of York Region’s changing population. Patients and families across Ontario will also directly benefit from this increased funding with the expansion of essential services to reduce wait times and priority procedures such as cardiac care, critical care, chemotherapy, treatment for strokes, hip and knee replacements, and medical imaging.
