Hospital redevelopment local share reached 

The plan for the local share of Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare’s (MAHC) hospital redevelopment is now official. 

The agency announced that more than 95 per cent of the needed $225-million dollars has been formally committed, after District Council voted to approve its portion on Monday: 

  • $77.3-million from the District of Muskoka  
  • $38.2-million from Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare  
  • $35-million from the Huntsville Hospital Foundation  
  • $35-million from the South Muskoka Hospital Foundation  
  • $10-million from the Town of Bracebridge  
  • $10-million from the Town of Huntsville  
  • $9.5-million from the municipalities of Almaguin Highlands 
  • $1-million from the Town of Gravenhurst  

Officials say the remaining $9-million for the local share will be raised over the next three years, while the province will foot the rest of the bill for the near-billion-dollar project. They add that construction is slated to begin as early as 2029. 

“Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare is delighted to reach this milestone in our work to design a made-in-Muskoka healthcare system that will serve our 4,000 square kilometre catchment in Muskoka and surrounding areas with safe, reliable access to high-quality healthcare for future generations,” says MAHC Board Chair Moreen Miller. “Together, we have demonstrated that the regions of Muskoka and East Parry Sound are united in one objective to invest in and build a system infrastructure that matches our unique region, the changing population, and the communities around us from Severn Bridge to Almaguin, anchored by two new, state-of-the-art acute care hospitals.” 

Miller also thanks everyone who has contributed towards the project.
