New Hospital In Oakville

Ontario Liberals Only Party Committed To Oakville Health Care

OAKVILLE, ON, Sept. 22, 2011 /CNW/ - Today Premier Dalton McGuinty broke ground at the New Oakville Hospital — one of the most advanced hospitals in Canada.

"Only the Ontario Liberals have a plan to make Ontario the healthiest place in North America in which to grow up and grow old," McGuinty said.  "Here in Oakville, a key part of that plan starts with opening the New Oakville Hospital."

Thanks to the hard work of Kevin Flynn, Ontario Liberal candidate for Oakville, together with Mayor Burton, Halton Healthcare Services and the people of Oakville, the New Oakville Hospital will deliver the following services: 

  • Emergency room care;
  • Complex continuing care;
  • Rehabilitation services;
  • Renal dialysis;
  • Acute inpatient care;
  • Maternal child care; and
  • Mental health services for both children and adults.

Ontario Liberals are delivering progress and results in health care.  Over a million more Ontarians now have a family doctor.  For newborn screening, Ontario has gone from checking just two disorders to 28 and we have gone from the longest to the shortest surgical wait times in Canada.

"A new cutting edge hospital means even better care for the residents of Oakville," McGuinty said.  "We are proud that this investment will help meet the needs of a growing population and deliver excellent quality health care services for Oakville families."

The Harris-Hudak PCs closed 28 hospitals.  Now the Hudak PCs have $14 billion in unfunded giveaways and tax cuts that would mean deep cuts to schools and hospitals like the New Oakville Hospital.

The last NDP government cut medical school spaces and helped create a provincewide doctor shortage.  Now the Horwath NDP platform doesn't address the big challenges we're facing in health care. Both would take Ontario off track at the worst time.

"After eight years of rebuilding Ontario's public health system, our families are seeing progress and results," McGuinty said.  "Only Ontario Liberals have a plan to improve health care at every stage of life, from prevention to research to treatment.  Our plan is working; we are delivering the very best health care for our children and grandchildren by working together with partners like Halton Healthcare Services.  We're committed to moving forward, together."
