Ontario’s Health Minister has brought his checkbook to Hamilton.
Dr. Eric Hoskins has announced more than 26-million dollars in funding for Hamilton’s health care sector.
Most of that funding for Hamilton Health Sciences and St. Joseph’s Healthcare was included in the provincial government’s spring budget.
But there was a surprise announcement today, when Hoskins unveiled a 2.5-million dollar grant to Hamilton Health to plan for future projects.
The bulk of today’s funding announcement is going to operating costs and treating stem cell transplant patients.
