Ontario Launching New $30 Million Surgical Innovation Fund

Published on June 25, 2021

Throughout the pandemic Ontario’s hospitals have been unwavering in their commitment to ensuring that Ontarians receive the exceptional care they need, when they need it.

 

The government is launching a new $30 million Surgical Innovation Fund that will directly support Ontario’s hospitals and provide them with the flexibility they need to perform more surgeries and procedures in their communities.

 

This new fund will support hospitals across the province as they develop the innovative solutions needed to continue to provide high quality care and ramp up surgical capacity, reducing wait times and improving access to surgical services for patients.

 

The Surgical Innovation Fund is part of the government’s investment of $300 million announced in the 2021 Budget to help the hospital sector recover, expanding access to care and helping to reduce the health service backlog due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The government continues to work closely with health system partners to explore additional measures and ensure patients and their families have access to the high-quality care they need, when they need it.
