The London Health Sciences Centre is closing 11 beds in its burns and plastic surgery unit as it continues to look for ways to eliminate a $24 million dollar budget deficit.

In a statement, the hospital said it continues to work on a three-year financial recovery strategy to achieve financial sustainability, and that the closing of the 11 surgical beds is part of the plan.

"A key component of this strategy is a comprehensive capacity management plan to standardize the approach for patient access and flow, invest in transitional care models in partnership with the community and optimizing planning to decrease overall patient length of stay while improving patient, safety, quality and experience," said LHSC's clinic services vice-president, Julie Trpkovski.
