Based on community feedback, we have adjusted our proposal to the Ministry of Health to develop a robust plan for Welland that will keep the hospital open and provide a wide range of services.

The site will feature a Centre of Excellence in eye care as well as a long list of outpatient services including dialysis, complex care mental health and addictions services, to name a few.

Within the Strategic Plan we speak to our three-site hospital system, moving to three hospital sites. Talking about our three site hospital system is not new. In 2016, a Master Plan for Niagara Health services across the region was submitted to the Ministry of Health, inclusive of two large acute care sites (one in north Niagara, the other in south Niagara) and one ambulatory site with 24/7 emergency services (the Welland Site). In 2018, the Ministry was in agreement with our Master Plan and subsequently approved the South Niagara Site Capital Project as a first project supporting the Master Plan. We are bringing it to the forefront for constructive discussions transparently through our Strategic Plan.

Further staff and community engagement is required to submit a proposal to the Ministry of Health for the Welland hospital site.
