Ontario New Democrats have released new information they say shows constant overcrowding at Brantford General Hospital and Peterborough Regional Health Centre.

They say documents obtained by the party indicate hospitals around the province are badly overcrowded and being forced to treat patients in hallways and broom closets.

They say the documents show acute care beds at Brantford General Hospital were operating as high as 120 per cent in January.

And the N-D-P says Peterborough Regional Health Centre recently announced that it is opening 24 unfunded beds in an effort to alleviate the overcrowding crisis.
