The article offers information on the increase in the hospital budget in Ontario by 1.5 percent. The budget for the fiscal year 2010-11 has restricted the hospitals to pay pharmacies for shelf space for drugs paying as per the performance of the executives. Increasing hospital expenditures in terms of salaries and medical supplies are resulting in reduction of staff and medical facilities in the hospitals of Ontario. The budget also focuses on the government assistance to the hospitals.
