The province says it’s spending 175-million dollars on repairs and upgrades to 131 hospitals this year including two local facilities the North Bay Regional Health Centre and the West Nipissing General Hospital.
Officials say the funding will allow hospitals to make critical improvements to their facilities, including upgrades or replacements to roofs, windows, heating and air conditioning systems, fire alarms and back-up generators.

The money comes through the Health Infrastructure Renewal Fund and the local allotments are $476,000 to the West Nipissing hospital and $217,000 for the North Bay facility.

20 hospitals in the Northeast are part of this announcement.
