Bluewater Health is getting a financial boost.

Ontario is providing a 3.2% funding increase for the coming year to meet current and future demand for regular services, the province said.

The $4.55 million top-up does not include money for COVID-19-related expenses, which is tracked and reported separately, said Sarnia-Lambton MPP Bob Bailey.

Bluewater Health operates hospital sites in Sarnia and Petrolia.

Overall, Ontario is investing an additional $935 in hospitals this year.
