Local MPP wants new South Niagara hospital included in Provincial budget
Niagara Falls MPP Wayne Gates firing off a letter to Finance Minister Charles Sousa urging him to speed up the timeline for a new South Niagara hospital.
Gates is asking that the redevelopment project for the Niagara Health System be included in the upcoming provincial budget.
Gates letter indicates the current timeline, which would see the new hospital opening its doors in 2023, isn't practical.
He says there are serious gaps in care in Niagara and the inclusion of the new South Niagara hospital in the budget would provide residents of Niagara with the healthcare they're entitled to.
