Replacing the roofs and updating equippment at both Milton District Hospital and Georgetown Hospital are part of an upcoming program to upgrade the older sections of the buildings.
In total, $756,249 will be spent on the projects through funding provided by the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund and the Community Infrastructure Renewal Fund. In all, $182 million will be spent across Ontario to assist community health care providers.
Al Coady of Halton Healthcare said the funds will allow the health care system to address the needed repairs and upgrades.
“This funding will enable us to replace roofing and outdated mechanical and building equipment in the older sections of our Georgetown and Milton Hospitals,” said Coady. “It is important that we maintain our hospital’s infrastructure and keep all of our facilities in a state of good repair so we can care for patients in a safe and healthy environment.”
The announcement was made through the office of Milton MPP Parm Gill who reiterated the need for the upgrades.
“This funding will allow our health care system partners to address urgent infrastructure renewal needs,” Gill said.
Some of the funds will also go to Support House, a Halton-based agency that assists those with mental health concerns and addiction.
