Trillium Health Partners (THP) is pleased to share the Government of Ontario has announced it is making over 2,000 additional beds and spaces available to help support hospitals and regions with the highest capacity challenges in the province.
THP will receive funding for up to 99 dedicated beds to support transitional care spaces outside of the hospital, ensuring those who no longer require care in a hospital setting can transition safely to home or community care.
Over the coming months, THP will work in partnership with the Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network (MH LHIN), West Park Healthcare Centre, Halton Healthcare and other partners to see how they can best utilize the new funding to support our growing community.
The announcement is part of ongoing work with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and MH LHIN to address THP’s significant capacity challenges. THP has a multi-pronged plan to address the capacity challenges now and into the future. Over the past year, they opened a new Complex Continuing Care unit, expanded the Credit Valley Hospital Emergency Department and received redevelopment approval to add over 500 new and 500 replacement beds at the Mississauga and Queensway hospital sites.
They continue to develop new innovative care models to increase capacity in the medium-term, including: the development of a Seniors’ Health Campus, expanding bundled care programs, and continued partnership with Runnymede Healthcare Centre. The investment in THP announced this fall will help them bridge the gap as they work towards expanding two of its hospitals in the next decade.
