"This week, Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health, was joined by Michael Tibollo, Associate Minister of Mental Health, and Robin Martin, the Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Health, to announce that the province is investing up to $60 million to support the construction of the Garry Hurvitz Brain Sciences Centre, a new, state-of-the-art facility dedicated to brain and mental health at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

"Investing in the new Garry Hurvitz Brain Sciences Centre at Sunnybrook, the first centre of its kind in Canada, is part of our plan to end hallway health care and support innovation and integrated care," said Elliott. "This project will help bring together key services currently scattered throughout the aging hospital. It will add more beds, expand outpatient clinic services, support better-integrated care and provide doctors and researchers with the right tools, equipment and space to make new discoveries that could significantly improve quality of life and even save lives."
Expected to be completed by December 2022, the new centre will bring together health care teams from across the brain sciences field such as psychiatry, neurology, imaging, neurosurgery, and geriatric medicine."
