The Ontario government announced new funding for one of the major healthcare centres in the Weston area. West Park will receive a new building, 51 new beds, major renovations, and a new physical plant.
West Park is at Weston and Jane and provides rehabilitation, community living, and complex continuing care. It also conducts research and other programs, generally for seniors and those living with disabilities.
Laura Albanese, our MPP, said in a press release
Improving the availability and quality of the local health care system for the residents of York South Weston is something that I’m particularly proud of. The West Park Healthcare Centre construction and renovation project clearly demonstrates our government’s commitment to accessible and excellent health care for all.
The press release also touted the benefits for Weston and Mount Dennis: “When construction commences, the investment will be an economic stimulus to the Weston and Mount Dennis communities, attracting more professional and higher paying jobs and create economic stimulus for construction trades.
