More Funding For Area Hospitals

Uxbridge Cottage Hospital is getting help to keep the facility going. MPP Peter Bethlanfalvy announced the province is investing $1.06 million for work on hospital infrastructure. While patients may not see the work that is being completed, Jo-Anne Marr, President and CEO of Markham-Stouffville Hospital, says work will be done on a new water main system, electrical system upgrades, renovation to failing brick and mortar, and upgrades to the life safety system, including fire suppression. Marr says Markham-Stouffville Hospital started a pre-capital process to look at a new facility four years ago, and they will continue to lobby for official approval, but this announcement means the current facility built in 1959 is up to code.
