A first look, today, at the Collingwood G & M Emergency Department Renovation project.
While there are plans for a new hospital, that will be down the road and officials say there is a need for improvements now.
Walker Aggregates has committed 60 thousand dollars toward the million dollar campaign.
According to Ministry of Health and Long Term Care standards, the Emergency Department in Collingwood is less than half the size it should be to treat over 33,000 patients annually.
Dr. Kylie Bosman ,Chief of the Emergency Department, says almost 350,000 patients will be treated in the Emergency Department over the next 10 years.
