Thunder Bay Gets $47 Million Hospital Expansion

(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Ontario is investing in a new wing at St Joseph’s Hospital in Thunder Bay that will improve care for people with mental health issues across north-western Ontario. Premier Kathleen Wynne made the announcement during a ground-breaking ceremony for the new East Wing.

The new wing of the 131 year-old St Joseph’s Hospital will offer 38 inpatient beds, outpatient programs, community support services and videoconferencing to enhance access to specialized mental health care.

The province will invest up to $47.8 million to cover about 90 per cent of the capital costs of the wing, which will house a Specialized Mental Health Program providing programs and services for people with mental illness or who require related services such as active and long-term psychiatric rehabilitation and geriatric psychiatry.
