BUILDING ON OUR STRENGTHS – The Proposed Windsor-Essex Hospitals System

The future of healthcare is bright in Windsor-Essex.   Last year a local Steering Committee submitted a plan to transform the region’s healthcare delivery system by ensuring residents get the right care, in the right place at the right time. The $2 billion system investment includes a new state-of-the-art hospital on County Rd 42 and Con. 9, an urgent/emergency care centre, outpatient mental health & other services in the heart of Windsor and a Centre of Mental Health Excellence at the Tayfour Campus. 

It’s a system that is locally made, patient-centred and accessible, with modern facilities.  Residents in Windsor-Essex deserve nothing less!  For more information, please visit
