Ontario Government Invests $31 Million in Windsor Regional Hospital’s Cardiac Lab Renovation

WINDSOR — The Ontario government is making a significant investment to enhance cardiac care in Southwestern Ontario. Premier Doug Ford’s administration has committed up to $31 million to renovate and expand the cardiac catheterization lab at Windsor Regional Hospital, aiming to provide life-saving cardiac services closer to home for residents in the region.

The substantial investment will transform over 17,000 square feet of the hospital into a state-of-the-art catheterization lab suite. This upgraded facility will feature a second catheterization table and offer 24-hour service, enabling the hospital to handle a higher volume of vital cardiac procedures. The expansion is expected to reduce wait times for both urgent and elective procedures, ensuring timely access to essential cardiac care.

Deputy Premier and Minister of Health Sylvia Jones emphasized the government’s dedication to improving healthcare accessibility. “Under Premier Ford’s leadership, our government continues to make record investments in healthcare to provide more Ontarians with convenient care options, close to home,” said Jones. “This upgraded cardiac lab in Windsor will allow even more people across Southwestern Ontario to access state-of-the-art cardiac care in their community when they need it most.”

Construction on the new lab is set to commence this summer, with the project slated for completion by July 2026. The initiative underscores Ontario’s commitment to strengthening healthcare infrastructure and expanding access to advanced medical services.

Windsor Regional Hospital is one of 20 Regional Cardiac Care Centres (RCCC) in Ontario. These centres are equipped to diagnose and treat a wide range of heart and blood vessel conditions, offering advanced cardiac services to both common and complex cases.

This investment aligns with the province’s broader healthcare strategy, “Your Health: A Plan For Connected and Convenient Care,” which aims to connect more Ontarians with convenient care options closer to home. The plan reflects Ontario’s proactive approach to ensuring long-term healthcare accessibility and sustainability across the province.

Residents of Southwestern Ontario can look forward to the enhanced cardiac care services that will soon be available at Windsor Regional Hospital, bringing critical medical support within reach for many families in the region.
