Ontario Liberal Leader Invites Health and Political Leaders to a Virtual Summit on the Escalating Hospital Crisis

TORONTO – Ontario Liberal Leader, Steven Del Duca has invited healthcare and political leaders to a nonpartisan virtual summit on addressing the hospital staffing crisis, and to discuss a unified plan on how to immediately shore up capacity.

“The crisis in our hospitals requires an all-hands-on-deck approach,” stated Ontario Liberal Leader, Steven Del Duca. “I sincerely hope all political leaders will attend this summit to hear from those on the frontline of our hospitals. Our vaccine certificate summit in August helped guide the province in the right direction on that issue, so it’s time to put partisanship aside and work together.”

“Hospitals have never been as full and staff have never been stretched as thin,” added Del Duca. “We need to listen to Ontario’s best and brightest doctors and nurses, and those with healthcare expertise, who understand what’s happening on the frontlines.”

Ontario is currently suspending 8,000 to 10,000 surgeries every week due to the crisis. Ontario Liberals recently called for a number of constructive emergency measures to address the staffing shortage, and hope to build on that list using suggestions from the healthcare leaders in attendance.

“This is about being collaborative and constructive to get us out of this crisis. I have written to each of the three other party leaders and I sincerely hope they attend on Monday. Ontario families need us to work together during these difficult moments.”
