Yesterday Premier Doug Ford and Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, announced that Ontario is moving forward with building 6,000 new long-term care beds which represent the first wave of the 15,000 new long-term care beds the government has committed to build over the next five years.

Miller  said “I am pleased to see our government acting quickly on the need for long-term care beds and to bring an end to hallway medicine and I am thrilled that Huntsville’s Fairvern Nursing Home is in the first round of new long-term care beds.”

As part of today’s announcement, the Ford Government re-committed to adding 20 long-term care beds to Fairvern Nursing Home in Huntsville.
