The Ontario government announced a multi-billion-dollar investment to build a new, state-of-the-art Mississauga Hospital and expand Queensway Health Centre, both of which are part of Trillium Health Partners.
Over the next 20 years, the demand for health care services offered by Trillium Health Partners is expected to increase by nearly seven times more than the average hospital in Ontario as the Peel and Etobicoke communities continue to grow. In anticipation of this growth, the Ontario government’s investment will add over 600 more hospital beds and expand services to improve access to care and reduce wait times for patients in Peel Region, Etobicoke and surrounding communities.
“This investment represents the largest hospital renewal plan in Ontario’s history,” said Premier Doug Ford.
“The redevelopment and expansion projects at THP will ensure we have the modern facilities and much-needed capacity to deliver high quality, exceptional care to this community for generations to come,” added Karli Farrow, president & CEO, Trillium Health Partners.
The new, fully redeveloped Mississauga Hospital is anticipated to include one of the largest emergency departments in Ontario, increase the number of operating rooms and add over 350 additional new beds. The redevelopment plans also include a new inpatient care tower at the Queensway Health Centre to centralize complex continuing care and rehabilitation services for patients, while also adding over 150 new beds.
“As we celebrate Trillium Health Partners’ 10-year anniversary, this new investment to support THP’s redevelopment is just one way we are delivering on that commitment,” said Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health.
“We are working hard to ensure all Ontarians have access to the high-quality services and supports they need most in their daily lives,” said Kinga Surma, Minister of Infrastructure. “That is why we are committed to investing in critical health care and long-term care infrastructure projects like the expansion and modernization of the Mississauga Hospital and Queensway Health Centre. To support growing demands on the health care system, Ontario is investing $30.2 billion over the next 10 years to build, expand and enhance hospitals, a historic commitment to ensure people can get the quality care they need in their communities.”
