Palliative care suites are coming to towns across the Northeast of Ontario.

The North East Local Health Integration Network has announced that they, alongside the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, are providing 17 new one-bedroom hospice suites in hospitals across the northeast.

The province is providing $105,000 of yearly funding per bed to each of the 17 hospitals, which includes Sensenbrenner Hospital in Kapuskasing and Notre-Dame Hospital in Hearst.

NE LHIN CEO Jeremy Stevenson says they are committed to improving the quality of palliative end-of-life care across the Northeast.
