It will likely take longer than a year to end overcrowding in Ontario's hospitals, despite a promise from Premier Doug Ford to tackle the problem in 12 months, the health minister said Monday.

Days after Ford's declaration, Health Minister Christine Elliott downplayed his remarks, saying he was articulating the government's "wishes" but the problem is more complex than that.

"The premier is really expressing that we're trying to do it as quickly as possible," she said. "While we hope that it will be within the next year, it may take a little bit longer."
