Help Put An End to
Hallway Health Care!

Instances of hallway health care in Ontario are at an all-time high. Hospitals are doing their part but without a significant investment in our underfunded system, wait times and access to care will only get worse. We need the government to act today and we need you to make sure they do!

Hospitals in our Communities Need Your Help to Put an End to Hallway Health Care

Ontarians expect hospitals to be there when they need them, but Ontario’s hospitals are struggling to keep up with rising demand and access to timely care is at serious risk. Ontario’s population is aging and growing, and there are too many patients waiting in hospital beds for care they should be receiving in other places. The result is long wait times, hospital overcrowding, and hallway health care – which is bad for patients and reflects an unbalanced health system.  

Ontario's hospitals are doing their part; they're among the most efficient in the country - the result of many years of dedicated effort. But there are no more meaningful efficiencies to be found. Simply put, hospitals have run out of options. Given the extraordinary gains in efficiency made by Ontario hospitals, continued access to high quality hospital services is now at risk for some hospitals.

Let’s put an end to hallway health care and build a better health care system for tomorrow.

Hospitals Are Doing Their Part

The government has committed to ending hallway health care – this is also the highest priority for hospitals, but rising demand and historical underfunding have left no more meaningful efficiencies to be found.
Ontario spends less per capita on hospitals than any other provincial government. The number of beds has not changed in two decades, but the population has grown 27% and the number of seniors has grown by 75%.
Over the past decade, Ontario hospitals faced several years with no base funding increases. Between 2012 and 2019, Ontario’s total increase in government funding for hospitals per capita was 5.4%. The average increase for other provinces was 12.9%.
This historical underfunding means they have been forced to provide more care with less. Ontario hospitals already have the lowest hospitalization rate, shortest hospital stays, and lowest cost per inpatient stay in Canada. Given the extraordinary gains in efficiency to date, continued access to high quality services is now at risk for some hospitals.
Significant health system changes are underway with the goal of providing better-connected care more efficiently. However, these improvements will take many years to complete. In the meantime, hallway health care is getting worse.
