By Rosalind Russell – Four new planes are coming to Ornge Air Ambulance’s fleet.
The province says the over one-hundred-and-eight-million-dollar investment will ensure the service can continue to provide Ontarians, especially those living in the north, with consistent access to high-quality care.
It brings the Ornge’s air ambulance fleet to twelve.
Once the new fleet is ready in 2026, officials say two fully staffed, 24/7 air ambulance crews will be added to further connect people in the Northeast region in need of rapid emergency care.
More money is also being provided to move the existing base in Sudbury to a larger hangar in the city, that will house both helicopters and planes in one place.
