In a bid to improve specialised care for children, Ontario has announced that it will spend Can$6.5m (US$5.4m) on new digital imaging systems (PACS) for four paediatric care centres in the province. The Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Ottawa will receive Can$2.7m; McMaster Children's Hospital in Hamilton, Can$2.2m; Sudbury Regional Hospital, Can$750,000; and Kingston General Hospital, Can$715,000. The funds are part of the Can$74.8m that George Smitherman, Ontario's health and long-term care minister, had earmarked last month for updating and replacing cancer radiation and diagnostic equipment.
