New Markham long-term care home to have 192 beds

The province announced today that the new Mon Sheong long-term care home in Markham will have 32 additional beds bringing the future facility’s size to 192.

“When Mon Sheong Markham is completed it will now have an additional 32 beds – this means it will be a place for 192 seniors in the community to call home, near their family and friends,” said said Rod Phillips, Minister of Long-Term Care.

Mon Sheong Markham is a not-for profit long-term care home that will be part of a campus of care, which helps integrate the home into the broader health care system and ensures residents have access to the care they need. The Mon Sheong Markham long-term care home is expected to start construction in the summer of 2023.

Billy Pang, MPP for Markham — Unionville said this is welcome news for the residents of his constituency.

This latest announcement is part of the Ford government’s $6.4 billion commitment to build more than 30,000 net new beds and about 28,000 upgraded long-term care beds across the province by 2028.

The current provincial government’s plan to fix long-term care is built on three pillars: staffing and care; accountability, enforcement, and transparency; and building modern, safe, comfortable homes for seniors.
