Transforming Peel Memorial to ensure the people of Brampton have access to 24/7 hospital services
After years of under investment, Brampton has waited far too long for access to the health care services their growing city needs. The great people of Brampton deserve and need better.
In our PC government’s 2021 Budget, we are finally delivering a new hospital and 24/7 Emergency Department for the great people of Brampton to make it easier for patients to access the care they need, while also expanding hospital capacity and helping to end hallway health care.
This is part of our government’s $3 billion funding increase in health care infrastructure over 10 years to ensure hospitals have the tools and support they need to continue delivering quality care to our communities.
To support the transformation of Peel Memorial into a new hospital, the province will fund the construction of over 250 net new beds at the site. The province is also converting Peel Memorial’s urgent care centre into a 24/7 operation by providing up to $18 millions dollars this year to pave the way for an eventual emergency department at the future hospital.
These investments will ensure the people of Brampton have access to 24/7 hospital services including urgent care, complex continuing care, enhanced mental health and rehabilitation for patients and families.
No other government in Ontario’s history has committed to invest more in Ontario hospitals than ours. Today’s announcement is part of an historic and overdue investment for the Peel Region to ensure the people of Brampton can access high-quality care when they need it – right in their own community.
