The premier and Ontario's health minister provided details today on long awaited plans for a rebuild of Trillium Health Partners' Mississauga Hospital.
The expansion of two hospital sites – one in Mississauga and another in Etobicoke – was announced in the Fall Economic Statement last month but more information about the projects was unveiled at a news conference in Mississauga today.
The Mississauga Hospital at 100 Queensway West will undergo a complete rebuild, while a second site in Etobicoke will receive a new patient tower.
“This investment represents the largest hospital renewal plan in Ontario’s history,” Premier Doug Ford said in a written statement.
“This pandemic has reminded us of the importance of having ready access to hospital beds when they’re needed most. Our government will never waver in our efforts to protect our progress by delivering modern hospitals with more beds to meet the needs of our growing communities today and for generations to come.”
Trillium Health Partners currently operates two hospitals in Mississauga – Credit Valley Hospital and Mississauga Hospital and the two sites currently operate more than 1,000 beds combined.
The province says redeveloped Mississauga Hospital is expected to include one of the largest emergency departments in Ontario, adding that there will be an increase in the number of operating rooms and the addition of more than 350 new beds.
"The redevelopment and expansion projects at THP will ensure we have the modern facilities and much-needed capacity to deliver high quality, exceptional care to this community for generations to come," Karli Farrow, the president and CEO of Trillium Health Partners, said in statement.
