Trillium Health Partners will work with Infrastructure Ontario to manage the day-to-day construction oversight, monitor commissioning and provide timely status reporting on progress.
Working together with long-term care and health system partners, Ontario continues to use innovative ideas and modern solutions to help end hallway health care and increase long-term care capacity in communities across the province.
