The Government of Ontario announced this week that it will invest close to $48 million to help build a new wing at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Thunder Bay to offer rehabilitation services to people with mental health issues.
The new wing will house a Specialized Mental Health Program to support people with mental health issues
The new wing will offer 38 inpatient beds, outpatient programs, community support services and videoconferencing to enhance access to specialized mental health care across northwestern Ontario. The investment from the Government of Ontario will cover about 90 per cent of the capital costs of the wing, which will house a Specialized Mental Health Program to support people with mental health issues.
“The new wing will ensure that people in northwestern Ontario can access the high-quality mental health care they deserve,” said Premier Kathleen Wynne.
