The province sinking $500,000 into a planning grant for the proposed expansion of rehabilitation beds at Hotel Dieu Shaver Hospital. 

The grant will help Hotel Dieu Shaver complete the first stage of planning for the proposed project to upgrade its aging facility.

She says it'll add more rehabilitation beds and improve access to services to families in the Niagara Region.
