We were honoured to welcome back Deputy Premier & Minister of Health Christine Elliott this morning to announce additional hospital funding. More funds helps Casey House deliver the judgment-free HIV health care we are known for.
Minister Elliott announced $68 million in additional funding for small and medium hospitals. Small hospitals, such as ours, will receive an additional 1% in funding and medium hospitals will receive 1.5%. For the 66 small and 23 medium hospitals in Ontario this is great news.
Casey House will receive $86,000 as a result, giving us more funds to continue delivering the judgement-free, client-centred care we are known for. In response to the announcement the chair of our board of directors Mark Lachmann spoke to our thanks and expertise in his remarks.
