The Government of Ontario is investing in new, innovative models to create a better care experience for patients and to build more capacity within the health care system to help end hallway health care. 

The Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, was joined by the Minister of Infrastructure, the Minister of Transportation and Francophone Affairs, and the Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Health, to announce an up to $75 million investment in the Orléans Health Hub project and to celebrate the start of construction. The new one-storey building will bring together bilingual services from three hospitals and four community service providers under one roof to support better coordinated care for patients and families, and ultimately reduce wait times. It is expected to open in summer 2021.

Under the hub, patients will have access to bilingual, patient-centred and integrated health care programs and services, including:

  • Specialist clinics such as dermatology, paediatrics, orthopedics and wound management
  • Mental health counselling, assessments and treatments
  • Specialized seniors' day programs, services and supports
  • Diagnostic imaging such as x-ray and ultrasound
  • Rehabilitation services.  

This project is part of the government's commitment to invest $27 billion over the next 10 years in hospital infrastructure projects across Ontario.
