The province has announced a cash injection for Ontario hospitals.

Health Minister Christine Elliott made the announcement Monday morning outside Trillium Health Partners in Mississauga.

“Our ongoing investments to support essential projects like repairing roofs and windows and adding more isolation spaces can make a big difference to a patient’s experience. It’s part of our plan to build the capacity we need to end hallway health care in Ontario,” Elliott said in a release.

The Ford government said the $174 million funding will go towards critical upgrades in 129 hospitals, which will include updating HVAC systems, creating additional isolation spaces, and enhancing infection control measures.

Part of the funding will include $3.4 million for Trillium Health Partners to support projects across all three of its sites.
