The provincial government says it is investing up to $159 million on the redevelopment of Brockville General Hospital. The project includes a new four-storey, 93-bed inpatient tower, as well as renovations to the hospital’s existing facilities. It will include inpatient services for mental health, palliative and complex continuing care, as well as rehabilitation and restorative care.
The redevelopment project consists of an addition and renovations to the hospital’s Charles St. site. Once complete, the project will consolidate all services from the Garden and Charles St. sites to a single campus at the Charles St. Site.
“Brockville General Hospital’s expansion and renovation projects will help create more capacity, reduce wait times and end hallway health care for patients and families in the Thousand Island region,” Christine Elliott, deputy premier and minister of health and long-term care, said in a statement.
“When completed, the new patient tower will add 22 new hospital beds with more private room options in a state-of-the-art facility. Projects like these are part of our government’s plan to modernize Ontario’s public health care system and end hallway health care,” Elliott said.
Overall, the provincial government has announced that it will invest $27 billion over the next 10 years in hospital infrastructure projects.
