BRAMPTON, ONT.—The Ontario government is marking the official opening of a new 160-bed long-term care building in Brampton.
Faith Manor welcomed its first resident on July 15. The home provides 40 new and 120 upgraded long-term care beds, stated a recent release.
Design improvements and upgrades include semi-private and private rooms, no ward rooms and air conditioning throughout the home.
Ontario now has 20,161 new and 15,918 upgraded beds in the development pipeline as part of the government’s $2.68-billion pledge to deliver 30,000 net new beds over 10 years. Sixty per cent of the 30,000 net new beds are currently in the planning, construction or completed stages of development.
“Our government is fixing Ontario’s long-term care system and building new facilities, like Faith Manor, is a key part of our plan,” said Ontario’s Minister of Long-term Care Rod Phillips, in a statement. “Faith Manor is providing a safe, modern, comfortable place for 160 local seniors to call home, close to family and friends while getting the care they need.”
