Perth-Wellington MPP Matthew Rae announced just over $2.3 million in funding for Stratford General Hospital.The cash comes through the Hospital On-Call Coverage program, and will support more on-call funding for doctors working after-hours. Rae said, “This is great news for our rural healthcare system.” The funds follow through on agreements between the Ontario Medical Association and Ontario Ministry of Health to increase dedicated funding for physicians on-call. This funding will support on-call coverage at nearly 100 acute-care hospitals in Ontario. Groves Memorial Community Hospital and Guelph General Hospital are also getting around $1.2 million and $2.6 million respectively. The money will support after-hours care and allow for more stable after-hours coverage.
