Ontario is improving access to health care for families in the Malton area by investing in a new site of the Bramalea Community Health Centre’s satellite.
The new, expanded space will help the centre provide families with better family health care, youth supports, oral health care, physiotherapy, chiropody and diabetes education. When fully operational, the centre will treat more than 40,000 people in the Malton area.
The new space for the Malton site is part of Building Together, Ontario’s long-term infrastructure plan.
Through Building Together, the government is investing in modern and efficient hospitals and healthcare settings that support the needs of our aging and diversifying population. Ontario will continue to make significant investments in public infrastructure over the next decade to improve the quality of life for families.
“Community Health Centres play a vital role in helping some of Ontario’s most vulnerable patients get the care they need. I’m proud to approve this new, renovated space for the Bramalea CHC’s satellite location, which will ensure improved access to high quality health care and services for Malton-area residents.”
- Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care
“The approval of the Malton CHC Satellite funding demonstrates our government’s ongoing commitment to improving health care services in Malton. I am glad that all the residents of Malton will have better access to the health care services they need and deserve, in a safe and comfortable environment closer to their home.”
- Dr. Kuldip S. Kular, MPP Bramalea-Gore-Malton
"The McGuinty government has shown tremendous leadership in investing in the renewal of family healthcare and Community Health Centres in particular. These investments will improve the health of people throughout the province, especially those whose health is most at risk."
- Adrianna Tetley, Executive Director, Association of Ontario Health Centres
“I’m delighted the government is supporting our plan to create a home for the new satellite location of the Bramalea Community Health Centre to provide quality health services for Malton residents and to work towards creating a healthy community.”
- Chezlie Alexander, Director, Population Health and Community Initiatives
