UHN will receive funding for 20 additional beds and see its former 75-bed Hillcrest Centre reopened.
The announcement, made yesterday at Sinai Health System by Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, is part of a provincial government plan to open more than 2,000 additional beds and spaces across Ontario this year as hospitals prepare for an increase in demand due to flu season.
In addition to funding more than 1,200 additional beds across the province, Dr. Hoskins also announced several plans to better accommodate alternate level of care (ALC) patients. They included.
"Our government is taking action to ensure people across Ontario have access to the care they need, when and where they need it," Dr. Hoskins said.
Mike Nader, EVP and UHN's Chief Operating Officer, said: "This is an example of the creative approach we are taking with the Ministry, the TC-LHIN and others in the system to deal with the pressures we are facing. If we have fewer ALC patients in our beds, we will have more beds for those who need acute services."
