The Ontario’ Government made an investment in rehabilitation care for patients and families in the Niagara Region with a recent announcement at the Hotel Dieu Shaver Health and Rehabilitation Centre in St. Catharines.
Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, and Monte McNaughton, Minister of Infrastructure, were at the Hotel Dieu Shaver Health and Rehabilitation Centre on February 8th, 2019, to announce a $500,000 planning grant for the proposed expansion of rehabilitation beds.
