Province aims to increase healthcare capacity and services in Peel region.
The Ontario government has announced plans to build a new, state-of-the-art Mississauga Hospital and expand the Queensway Health Centre. Both are part of Trillium Health Partners (THP).
The new facilities will add more than 600 additional hospital beds to serve residents of Peel Region, Etobicoke, and the surrounding communities, and represent the largest expansion of hospital services for Mississauga and West Toronto since the Credit Valley Hospital was built in 1985.
“To support growing demands on the health care system, Ontario is investing $30.2 billion over the next 10 years to build, expand and enhance hospitals, a historic commitment to ensure people can get the quality care they need in their communities,” said Kinga Surma, Minister of Infrastructure.
The new hospital will be located at the current Mississauga Hospital site and will replace an existing facility that is more than 60 years old. Construction is expected to begin in 2025.
The new, fully redeveloped Mississauga Hospital is anticipated to include one of the largest emergency departments in Ontario, increase the number of operating rooms and add over 350 additional new beds.
The plans for Queensway Health Centre include a modern, dedicated centre for complex care and rehabilitation services and more than 150 new beds.
“The redevelopment and expansion projects at THP will ensure we have the modern facilities and much-needed capacity to deliver high quality, exceptional care to this community for generations to come,” stated Karli Farrow, president & CEO of Trillium Health Partners.
Trillium Health Partners is one of the largest community hospital systems in Canada, serving over 1.7 million patients annually in Mississauga, West Toronto and surrounding communities across its three sites: Credit Valley Hospital, the Mississauga Hospital and the Queensway Health Centre.
