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
Emergency room care;
Complex continuing care;
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
"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."
