Mississauga hospitals receiving over $3 million from the province for upgrades and repairs
Trillium Health Partners (THP), the organization that operates Credit Valley Hospital and the Mississauga Hospital in Mississauga, will receive funding from the province to cover upgrades and repairs.
On Sept. 14, Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, announced that THP will receive over $3.4 million to support projects at its Mississauga and Etobicoke hospitals.
Projects include replacing HVAC systems to improve indoor air quality, installing newer nurse call systems for patients and repairing roofs and elevators.
The province says the funding is part of a $175 million investment that will help fund upgrades, repairs and maintenance in 129 hospitals across the province. The funding also includes $50 million for COVID-19 related and other urgent projects.
The province says the funding will help hospitals address urgent issues such as upgrades or replacement of roofs, windows, security systems, backup generators and fire alarms. The funding also aims to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 by allowing upgrades to HVAC systems, creating additional isolation spaces and negative air pressure flow rooms to increase capacity, and enhancing infection prevention and control measures.
“Delivering safe, exceptional care to our patients is our top priority and we know that our patients’ physical environment plays an important role in their comfort, healing and recovery during their hospital stay,” said Michelle DiEmanuele, President and CEO, Trillium Health Partners, in a statement.
“This funding is an important part of creating a better environment for our patients to recover in and will allow us to make critical infrastructure repairs and upgrades across our three hospital sites.”
