STATEMENT: Mayor Crombie Welcomes Historic Investment by Provincial Government to Redevelop Trillium Health Partners’ Mississauga Hospital
“I want to thank Premier Ford and the provincial government for this transformational multi-billion dollar investment that will help build a new, state-of-the-art Mississauga Hospital. This is truly a historic day for Trillium Health Partners (THP) and the people of Mississauga, and means we will soon be home to one of the largest, most innovative hospitals in all of Canada.
Throughout the pandemic, the remarkable staff at THP worked tirelessly to keep residents healthy and safe, and for that I am forever grateful. It has also, unfortunately brought to light some of the real limitations of this site.
From ageing infrastructure to outdated technology, Mississauga deserves a world-class hospital capable of supporting our City’s growing community. This investment will add capacity and reduce wait times for residents with over 350 new beds in Mississauga, new operating rooms and one of the largest emergency departments in Ontario.
THP is one of the largest community hospital systems in Canada, serving over 1.7 million patients annually in Mississauga and throughout the GTA. We know that THP will experience more demand for services than any other hospital over the next 20 years – 7 times more than the average hospital in the province – this not only demonstrates the need for this new hospital but underscores the importance of today’s investment.
The redevelopment will also create thousands of highly skilled jobs and grow our economy, ensuring Mississauga remains competitive on a world scale. It will also build a sense of community and change the landscape of the corner of Hurontario and Queensway making it fully accessible and serviced by the Hurontario LRT, another project part of our efforts to build a complete and connected community.
I want to once again thank Premier Ford and the provincial government for this significant investment that will help build Mississauga for the future. I’d also like to thank the many generous donors who are helping us build this new hospital and of course, the leadership and staff from Trillium Health Partners for the incredible work they do to keep our City healthy and safe.”
