Ontario Building New Long-Term Care Beds in The Blue Mountains
Last week, the Ministry of Long-Term Care announced that the Ontario government will be adding 160 new beds in a new long-term care home in the Town of The Blue Mountains.
The new 160-bed long-term care home is proposed to be part of a community campus of care focused on healthy seniors’ living, which includes commercial space, multi-residential space, seniors’ housing, and attainable housing for staff working to support the campus of care.
The Town is expected to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) for proponents interested in developing and operating the different components of the campus, including the long-term care home, on municipally-owned land in 2022. Construction is expected to start by summer 2024 and the home is expected to open by the end of 2026.
