Hospital expansion plans in Mississauga will reportedly lead to the creation of the largest hospital anywhere in Canada.
Details of the expansion at Trillium Health Partners (THP), which operates Mississauga and Credit Valley hospitals in addition to the Queensway Health Centre in Etobicoke, are expected to be released at a news conference at 10 a.m. this morning.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford and Health Minister Christine Elliott will be at Mississauga Hospital to announce further details of expansion at two of the sites, according to CP24.
While officials have yet to release further details at this point, it is known that major expansion plans have been in the works at the Mississauga Hospital site, at Hurontario St. and The Queensway.
THP spoke about significant upgrades planned at that site back in October when the hospital received a large, unspecified financial donation from the family of Dr. Ignat Kaneff, a prominent Mississauga businessman, developer and philanthropist who died last year.
The money, the Kaneffs said, is ticketed for significant, and much-needed upgrades to Mississauga Hospital, a “gift that builds on (Ignat Kaneff’s) remarkable first donation and will benefit future generations.”
At the time, THP officials said that the redevelopment of Mississauga Hospital is critical to the long-term health of the community, and that it will support Mississauga’s diverse and rapidly growing population.
According to THP, no hospital in Ontario has experienced greater demand for healthcare services than Mississauga Hospital. During the pandemic, THP has cared for one of the highest volumes of COVID-19 patients in the province, often in parts of Mississauga Hospital that were built more than 60 years ago.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
