At Niagara Health, extraordinary caring is what our patients, their families, our volunteers, our teams, and our community need and deserve. That is why extraordinary experiences will be at the forefront as we work in partnership to redesign how healthcare is delivered across our region to build a healthier Niagara.
We were privileged to have Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, recently visit the site of the new Niagara Falls hospital to make a couple of important announcements and help us unveil a new billboard that is an important symbol of our future – A Healthier Niagara.
Ontario is helping people in the Niagara region get faster access to high-quality care with a new, state-of-the-art hospital for patients and families in Niagara Falls.
Minister Hoskins was at the building site in Niagara Falls (on Oct. 30) to announce that the construction of the Niagara Falls Hospital is moving forward.
The new hospital will provide healthcare to over 434,000 people through state-of-the-art facilities designed to meet the region's changing health care needs. Patients will have access to emergency and urgent care, laboratory services, ambulatory clinics, and full diagnostics including MRI, CT scans, ultrasounds and X-rays. The hospital will also feature traditional healing spaces and will continue to facilite Niagara Health's role in educating medical and other health professionals.
“We are excited about creating an environment that will bring out the best in our people and enable them to bring their best to work. Developing our people and creating engaged teams will help us to create a work culture that is positive and respectful, where everyone will have a vital role to play.”
Suzanne Johnston, Niagara Health President
“What an honour it is to be joined by our Minister of Health and Long-Term Care Dr. Eric Hoskins. His advocacy for healthcare in this province and the work he is doing to make change is a demonstration of his heartfelt commitment to the people of Ontario.”
Kevin Smith, Niagara Health CEO
“In partnership we can accomplish so much more, which has been demonstrated over and over again in the progress we have made so far.”
John MacDonald, Chair, Niagara Health Board of Directors
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to participate and for the front-row seat as we continue to collaborate on something that will be truly amazing for the people of Niagara.”
Dr. John Ostrowski, Chief of Orthopedics at Greater Niagara General Site
“We are excited about the commitment of the Province to move forward on this critical piece of the healthcare puzzle in Niagara. Our residents deserve the very best in healthcare.”
Jim Diodati, Mayor, City of Niagara Falls
A second sign belonging to the Province of Ontario was also unveiled at the site, which signifies the government’s commitment to the project, and its involvement through Infrastructure Ontario.
As the planning for Niagara Falls and Welland moves forward, we will continue to work with our communities, the LHIN and the Ministry to determine the service needs of all of our communities across Niagara as we work to achieve our vision of a healthier Niagara.
