“We recognize the Government of Ontario for its historic and transformational investment to increase service at McMaster Children’s Hospital. This remarkable support is closing many of the critical gaps within the pediatric system. Our skilled healthcare professionals will now be supported so we can reduce wait times and improve access across the spectrum of kids’ care. It’s a huge step forward in ensuring that every child can get the care that they need.”
