McGuinty Government Providing Quality Services Closer To Home
Ontario is supporting major improvements at Toronto Grace Health Centre that will give more Torontonians better access to state-of-the-art health care, closer to home.
Planning is underway for a redevelopment project that will improve air quality for patients and staff, upgrade safety in patient rooms, washrooms and showers, and renovate the main entrance that will modernize and improve patient access to programs and services.
Investing in modern and efficient hospitals that support the needs of our aging and diverse population is part of Building Together, Ontario’s long-term infrastructure plan. Ontario will continue to make significant investments in public infrastructure over the next decade to improve the quality of life for families.
“When I was elected as the MPP for Toronto Centre, I made a commitment to protect and improve health care at Toronto Grace. I’m proud to be delivering on that commitment today.”
– Glen Murray, MPP for Toronto Centre and Minister of Research and Innovation
“For over 100 years, The Salvation Army has been supporting world class health care in the heart of Toronto. Today, as we celebrate the future of Toronto Grace, we recognize the hard work and dedication of our staff, our volunteers, Minister Glen Murray and the Government of Ontario, whose commitment to health care has made this day possible.”
– Commissioner Brian Peddle, Territorial Commander – National Leader of The Salvation Army in Canada
“This is a wonderful day for Toronto Grace – for our patients, our staff, and our community. Thanks to the McGuinty government’s support, we will be able to improve the quality of palliative and complex continuing care for our community. We can’t wait to get started.”
– Marilyn Rook, President and CEO, Toronto Grace Health Centre
Ontario has invested in over 100 major hospital capital projects since 2003. This includes 18 brand new hospitals that are either completed or in development.
The McGuinty government will be investing more than $35 billion in hospitals, public transit, schools, highways and other projects over the next three years as part of the Building Together infrastructure plan.
