NDP Leader Andrea Horwath slammed the Tory government Wednesday, calling the loss of 49 beds at London Health Sciences Centre "troubling" and no way to fix its "hallway medicine crisis."

"Patients across Ontario are left being treated in hospital hallways," said Horwath, who met with the Ontario Nurse Association Wednesday, a union representing about 3,400 nurses at the London hospital. "The closure of these 49 beds – including the 11 crucial beds in burns and plastics unit – will make this crisis worse."

LHSC has about 1,010 beds at Victoria Hospital and University Hospital.
