    One-time minor infrastructure resources approved for community health
    service providers
    

    NEWS

    LONDON, ON, Feb. 25 /CNW/ - The South West LHIN Board of Directors today
approved $2,591,531 in one-time funding to assist community sector health
service providers make necessary investments in minor infrastructure resources
to assist them in meeting service delivery goals.
    Investment opportunities include minor capital works, equipment, staff
training and strategic priority-setting planning. Specifically, building
renovations, equipment maintenance, new resources like vans and accessibility
equipment, and information technology to better meet collection and reporting
requirements are examples of approved investments.
    This funding helps community sector providers address challenges in
finding the necessary financial resources to make important investments in
their infrastructure. The South West LHIN is pleased to step forward and help
providers meet their goals of delivering quality services and care.
    The funding for these investments are reallocations of monies that cannot
be fully utilized for their specific purpose in community sector budgets. The
South West LHIN is taking a proactive stance to see that they are used
appropriately. To that end, the LHIN issued an on-line call for requests in
support of making minor infrastructure investments in the community sector,
and based decisions on a set of criteria shared with the providers in advance.

    QUOTES

    "The community health service providers in the LHIN can make immediate
and important improvements with this funding," said Michael Barrett, CEO of
the South West LHIN. "We are very pleased with the scope of the response and
know these funds are targeted to areas of need," added Barrett.
    "We are pleased to allocate these funds to investment opportunities the
agencies have identified as priorities," said Janet McEwen, Vice Chair of the
South West LHIN Board of Directors. "We are confident they will produce real
benefits," says McEwen.
