Located in Ontario, the expansion project will add 330,000ft² of space to the existing 125,000ft² facility.

Ontario health and long-term care minister Dr Eric Hoskins said: "Soon shovels will be in the ground to expand Milton District Hospital into a state-of-the-art facility that meets the diverse healthcare needs of this fast-growing community."

"Under the expansion, hospital beds will be increased from 63 to 129 and single-patient rooms will be constructed to improve infection prevention and provide increased patient privacy."

Construction on the project is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2017 and will be opened for patients in the last quarter of 2017.

Under the expansion, hospital beds will be increased from 63 to 129 and single-patient rooms will be constructed to improve infection prevention and provide increased patient privacy.

The project will also include expansion of emergency and surgical services, medical or surgical inpatient units, critical care, maternal newborn and diagnostic imaging and support services.
