Advisory: Ontario's Hospitals Cut Beyond All Limits: New Report to be Released by Ontario Health Coalition

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 12, 2016) - A year has passed since the release of the Ontario Health Coalition's Code Red report on Ontario's hospital cuts crisis. Not only have the cuts continued, in many communities they have deepened.

Ontario is now in the ninth year of real-dollar cuts to global hospital budgets. Patients are paying the price: they are being left on stretchers in hallways, surgeries are being cancelled and vital health services are being privatized, subject to user fees, or moved out of town. Join as the Ontario Health Coalition releases a shocking new report entitled Beyond Limits: Ontario's Deepening Hospital Cuts Crisis.

When and Where: Wednesday April 13, 2016.

10 a.m. The hospital emergency sign at the northwest corner of Gerrard St. W. and Elizabeth St., Toronto.
