Norm Miller MPP for Parry Sound Muskoka says the province is investing nearly $1.3this year to support health care infrastructure upgrades, repairs, and maintenance in Parry Sound-Muskoka.

Miller says the West Parry Sound Health Centre will receive $412,367 and Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare will receive $885,268.

According to Miller, the money will be used for upgrades or replacements of roofs, windows, security systems, fire alarms and back-up generators and some of the funds will be used for urgent projects, including the response to COVID-19, such as upgrading HVAC systems to enhance patient and staff safety, and improving infection prevention and control measures.

At the Huntsville location, funds will go towards a new emergency back-up generator project, roof replacement work, and new flooring in the Intensive Care Unit, and to the creation of an additional negative pressure isolation room. At the South Muskoka site, funds will be used for generator upgrades, roof replacement work, HVAC improvements, and renovations to three point-of-care/nursing stations.
