Ontario Breaks Ground on New Long-Term Care Home in Simcoe County: Stayner Care Centre will bring much-needed beds to the province.
STAYNER — Construction is underway at the new Stayner Care Centre, a long-term care home in Simcoe County. This is part of the government’s $6.4 billion commitment to build more than 30,000 net new beds by 2028 and 28,000 upgraded long-term care beds across the province.
“Congratulations to Stayner Care Centre on their ground-breaking for a new home. Our government is fixing long-term care and a key part of that plan is building modern, safe, and comfortable homes for our seniors,” said Paul Calandra, Minister of Long-Term Care. “Two new long-term care development projects have been completed in Simcoe County since spring 2021. Today marks a significant milestone for Stayner Care Centre and will bring 79 new beds to the county. When building is completed, 128 residents will have a new place to call home, near their family and friends.”
Simcoe-Grey MPP Brian Saunderson said the significant expansion of the Stayner Care Centre with the addition of 79 new long-term care beds is great news for Simcoe-Grey. “This is one of thirteen projects that will add over 1,000 new long-term care beds in Simcoe County and is part of our government’s investments to build modern, state-of-the-art long-term care homes to better serve seniors across the province” Saunderson said.
