Hospitals on the Brink
Ontario’s hospitals are on the brink. Many hospitals are under enormous pressure to provide care to a growing and aging population, and wait times are going up. Today, many patients are waiting far too long in hospitals to receive care at home, in long-term care, or in the community. No matter which Party is elected in June, now is the time for urgent action on health care. Ending hallway medicine will require significant long-term investments in hospitals and across the continuum-of-care, as well as a long-term capacity plan to adequately prepare for patients – now and in the future.
