In a press conference held by the Ontario Healthcare Coalition on Friday morning, September 15th, the dire state of healthcare in Ontario took center stage.
The numbers tell a grim story. In 2022, there were 848 hospital emergency room closures, and this year, they are on track to match that number.
Executive Director of the coalition Natalie Mehra’s words were definitive.
She continued with recognizing the absence of recognition from the province about the issue, and called to question the lack of action, and prioritization of for profit services.
