Pinecrest to see expansion
The Ontario government is building 63 new and 65 upgraded beds at Pinecrest Nursing Home in Bobcaygeon. This is part of the government’s $6.4 billion commitment to build more than 30,000 net new beds by 2028 and 28,000 upgraded long-term care beds across the province, according to a media release from local MPP Laure Scott’s office.
This brings the total of new long-term care beds in development or under construction to 300 and the total of upgraded long-term care beds to 436 for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock under our government’s commitment.
“Today’s announcement for Pinecrest Nursing Home is part of our plan to fix long-term care and ensure seniors get the quality of care they need and deserve,” said Scott. “We saw how remarkable the local healthcare staff were at Pinecrest during the pandemic and this funding is another part of our plan to improve staffing and care, accountability, enforcement, and transparency by building modern, safe, comfortable homes for seniors.”
