Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, announced earlier this month, that the government is investing $175 million this year to address critical upgrades, repairs and maintenance in 129 hospitals across the province, including $50 million for COVID-19 related and other urgent projects.
As part of this investment, hospitals in Simcoe North are part of that stream and will receive the following:
- Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital - $2,699,353

Through the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund (HIRF), this funding will help hospitals maintain their infrastructure and ensure a safe and comfortable environment for patients to receive care.
