LANARK COUNTY – Almonte General Hospital (AGH) and Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) are two of 128 hospitals across Ontario that have received one-time funding, as part of the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund and the Exceptional Circumstance Project Grant program. AGH has received $265,703 and CPDMH has received $1,001,029.
This annual Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care funding is used to upgrade, repair and maintain facilities. At AGH, the money will be used to upgrade fire system detection devices and replace the air handling system in the Rosamond Wing. At CPDMH, the air handling system in the operating room and sterilization department will be upgraded and a generator will be replaced.
“We welcome this additional one-time funding,” said president and CEO Mary Wilson Trider. “It ensures that our facilities remain in a good state of repair to provide a safe and comfortable environment for our patients, residents and families.”
