Today, the Provincial government announced a $500,000 grant to fund early re-building plans at West Lincoln Memorial Hospital. In addition to this grant, the government is investing $8.5 million to fund immediate infrastructure improvements as part of the hospital’s redevelopment.

The Ontario Medical Association (OMA) views this investment as a positive step by the government to support and find solutions to end hallway medicine. The OMA looks forward to continued collaboration with the government in order to identify further regions and facilities for future investments based on need, evidence and resource allocation.

"Today's announcement is another step in our commitment to end hallway medicine and deliver excellent front line health care to the people of Ontario," said Premier Ford.

“Community hospitals like West Lincoln Memorial provide core health care services to surrounding towns and cities so that people can get care closer to home. The government’s investment is smart, equitable and most of all, compassionate — and doctors are happy to see it,” said OMA President, Dr. Nadia Alam.
