The Ontario provincial government is not able to support the costs needed to enhance our Diagnostic Imaging Department and launch our new Health Information System. Cuts to Ontario’s hospitals disproportionately affect rural populations, which is why we ALL need to fight to restore rural healthcare. The 2.6 million Ontarians who live in small towns deserve more than longer drives to access a hospital.
We will purchase high priority medical equipment and infrastructure that is vital for patient care at Erie Shores HealthCare. Now, we are launching our Care Happens Here capital campaign to raise $15 million needed for a state-of-the-art Diagnostic Imaging Department and Health Information System.
We need you to help us save lives, fight diseases and to provide preventative care. But we are also fighting against the
limits of a 70-year-old hospital where parts of the building don’t meet modern building codes. Where our outdated spaces
and technology can’t accommodate the quality of care our patients deserve.
That’s where you come in.
Investing in our local hospital will help speed our ability to take leading programs/services and turn them into groundbreaking treatments and care. Through clinical support, quality patient care, and funding for our campaign, we will transform the way we do medicine, to make a bigger impact on patients, sooner.
We need a department that lifts not limits our ability to care for patients. We will construct a state-of-the-art department to accommodate the best that medicine can offer, matching our world-class expertise with the best clinical spaces for patients, while maintaining a safe work environment for staff. To accomplish this, we will need to purchase all new equipment and renovate three of our diagnostic treatment rooms.
Seamless healthcare means no cracks to fall through. Our innovation will expand initiatives that build capacity both in our community and across the province, ensuring EVERYONE can receive integrated care they need no matter where they live. This project is about coming together to transform clinical services by equipping the hospital with a modern information system that will drastically alter the way patient care is delivered in our community.
