New acute care hospital planned for Windsor

WINDSOR, ONT.—The Ontario government is investing $9.8 million to support planning for a new acute care hospital in Windsor and Essex County, Ont. which, once complete, will consolidate two separate acute care campuses at Windsor Regional Hospital and expand acute care services.

The new facility will replace outdated infrastructure with high tech facilities and aims to support better care in the region. Planned services include cancer care, complex trauma, obstetrics, neurology and cardiology, indicates a release, adding the new hospital will also have more single-patient rooms to increase patient privacy and prevent the spread of infection. Urgent care and outpatient services will remain at Windsor Regional Hospital’s Ouellette site to preserve access for patients in downtown Windsor.

As part of the planning for the new hospital, approximately 68 acute mental health beds are expected to be transferred to Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare to improve mental health and addictions services and programs for the people in the area. The beds will support a new Centre of Excellence in Mental Health and Addictions for the region, making it easier for patients to receive mental health and addiction services in one location, adds a release.

The Ontario government is also taking further action to support health care in Windsor and Essex County by increasing the operating funding in both hospitals for the third consecutive year. Windsor Regional Hospital will receive over $7.8 million in additional operating funding starting this year, representing an increase of 2.2 per cent, and Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare received $1.57 million, representing an increase of 2.1 per cent.
