The organization, which represents 40,000 hospital workers, claims that until thousands of additional hospital personnel and beds arrive in the province over the next four years, the situation facing Ontario's hospitals will deepen. The findings of the paper 'The Hospital Problem: No Capacity, No Plan, No End' explored the problem. Pursuant to the union, Ontario must raise bed capacity and personnel levels by 22% over the next four years in order to appropriately care for the province's aging and growing population. Owing to the union, around 8,170 additional hospital beds will be required, as well as 60,000 additional employees. The union estimated that 2,270 hospital beds and 11,960 hospital personnel would be required in Toronto alone.
