Laurie Scott is asking the province to give more long-term care beds to facilities in the Central East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN).

Scott is asking the province to release the study on long term care capacity to make sure beds are going where they’re needed.

However, the Associate Minister of Health and Long Term Care says they are already investing in long term care. Scott says there are homes in Haliburton County that don’t know when they will get new beds.

According to the Minister, they plan to redevelop all existing beds and the program is open. She also says long term care wait times in Ontario have been reduced by 45 per cent since 2009.
