McGuinty Government Delivers Strengthened Public Health Care



    Hospitals Are Now Receiving 28.3 Per Cent More Funding Than In 2003-2004

    HAMILTON, ON, June 8 /CNW/ - After four years in office, the McGuinty
government is renewing public health care in Ontario with a 28.3 per cent
increase in funding that enables hospitals to deliver shorter wait times, more
access to doctors and nurses and provides more critical health services to
Ontarians, Health and Long-Term Care Minister George Smitherman announced
today.
    "Our goal is to encourage innovation and renewal in Ontario hospitals so
that over the long term, they continue to meet the health care needs of
patients," Smitherman said. "Working collaboratively with our hospital
partners, we have made significant progress in achieving this goal and we're
proud that the vast majority of our hospitals are working more resourcefully,
and delivering quality care in the public health care system."
    Hospitals will receive $14.1 billion in operating funding this fiscal
year, an increase of $495 million or 3.7 per cent over last year.
    The government has been working closely with hospitals over the last
three years to help them balance their books and become more financially
secure. An important component of hospitals' ability to better plan for the
coming year, was the introduction of predictable, multi-year funding. The
McGuinty government's initiative to provide stable funding allows hospitals to
manage their budgets and better plan for the upcoming year.
    "Hospitals are one of the cornerstones of our health care system,"
Smitherman said. "We are now seeing a new spirit of leadership in Ontario's
hospitals for the benefit of patients, and as a result we are better
positioned to see our public health care system grow for all Ontarians."
    "The government has implemented a number of initiatives that have helped
improve hospital financial planning and create a more stable health system,"
said Hilary Short, President and CEO of the Ontario Hospital Association. "We
look forward to working with Local Health Integration Networks to ensure that
hospitals have the resources they need to meet patient care needs."

    This is just one more example of how, working together, Ontarians have
achieved results in quality hospital care for families. Other initiatives
include:

    
    -  Reducing wait times for five key health care services (hip and knee
       joint replacement, cataract surgeries, cancer surgeries, cardiac
       procedures and MRI and CT exams) with an investment of more than
       $895 million over four years for approximately 1,270,000 additional
       procedures in these areas.

    -  Investing $5 billion in modernizing and expanding health care
       facilities by 2010 to meet the needs of the province's growing and
       aging population.

    -  Investing $143 million in an Emergency Department Action Plan, which
       contains system-wide solutions to ensure emergency rooms stay open and
       increase capacity in the health care system to meet the needs of
       Ontario patients.

    -  Investing in community-based primary health care with the creation of
       49 new and satellite Community Health Centres (CHCs), and 150 Family
       Health Teams to reduce the pressure on hospital emergency rooms.
    

    Today's initiative is part of the McGuinty government's plan for
innovation in public health care, building a system that delivers on three
priorities - keeping Ontarians healthy, reducing wait times and providing
better access to doctors and nurses.

       McGUINTY GOVERNMENT INVESTING IN HOSPITALS TO STRENGHTHEN PUBLIC
                                 HEALTH CARE
    

    The Ontario government is investing an additional $495 million in
Ontario's hospitals this fiscal year for a total of $14.1 billion in operating
funding. This amount includes the operating funding for public hospitals, as
well as funding for private and specialty psychiatric hospitals.
    Stable, multi-year hospital funding has grown by 28.3 per cent since
2003-04 to support the government's plan to keep Ontarians healthy, reduce
wait times and provide better access to doctors and nurses.
    In the past two years, the government provided hospitals with multi-year
funding allocations to allow them to better plan for the needs of their
communities and patients. Today's announcement of 2007-08 allocations only
reflects a transitional year in this regard, as Local Health Integration
Networks assumed responsibility for hospital operations and funding on April
1, 2007. The government remains committed to stable, predictable hospital
funding and expects LHINs to continue the multi-year allocations process
beginning next year.
