Sousa Announces Improved Access To Hospital Services In Mississauga

Ontario Government Expands Services at Credit Valley Hospital and Trillium Health Centre

Mississauga – Today at Credit Valley Hospital (CVH), Mississauga South MPP Charles Sousa announced that Ontario is expanding services at CVH and Trillium Health Centre to ensure that residents of Mississauga can get better access to the quality care they need, close to home.

The province is providing $19.5 million in additional operating funding to help the hospitals provide services in the space created through its recently-completed redevelopment project. The money will help the hospital provide more services, such as:

  • Expanded cancer, and surgical at Credit Valley Hospital
  • Expanded paediatric and obstetric services at Credit Valley hospital
  • Ambulatory Care Clinic at Trillium Health Centre
  • Urgent Care at Trillium Health Centre

 

The Mississauga hospitals are just two of 32 newly-redeveloped hospitals across the province expanding services.

Today’s announcement is part of the Ontario government’s Post Construction Operating Plan (PCOP) funding initiative, which supports the operations of new hospital facilities. It is annual funding that is added to the hospital’s base funding.

Investing in front line health care is part of the province’s Open Ontario Plan to provide more access to health care services and improve quality and accountability for patients.
