Across Ontario, too many patients are left waiting too long for the care they need.

That's why Ontario's Government is taking a major step forward in its plans to end hallway health care by investing $27 billion over the next 10 years in essential hospital infrastructure projects across the province.

These investments will build critical frontline care capacity by creating more than 3,000 new hospital beds.

In addition to investments in creating more beds, the government is making renewal investments to ensure that long-neglected facilities across the province are properly maintained.
