Leading the way
Providence Care Hospital is one of the first publicly-funded hospital in North America to fully-integrate long-term mental health and psychiatry programs with physical rehabilitation, palliative care and complex medical management. The entire hospital has been designed to be welcoming and inclusive of all people, no matter what age, ability or needs.
Providence Care Hospital brings to life the concept of person and family centred care, where everyone works in collaboration to meet the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of each person.
Building on our tradition of compassion
Providence Care Hospital provides a 270-bed state-of-the-art care environment for patients and clients. The hospital includes single inpatient rooms and adjacent therapy and treatment spaces to allow patients and clients to receive care closer to their rooms. It also features improved teaching, learning and research facilities that support Providence Care’s role as a major centre for health education and research.
Landscape and local heritage
Providence Care Hospital is integrated into the landscape and local architecture, providing individuals with a sense of place and drawing influence from nearby heritage buildings, Lake Ontario, and the park. The modern design achieves a balance between “old and new”, blending the use of various masonry, stone, metal and wood exteriors.
Providence Care Hospital incorporates ‘green’ design to reduce our impact on the environment. Patients and clients, as well as everyone who works and visits the hospital, has the opportunity to experience the outdoor environment as an important part of the healing process. The design encourages a healthy environment both within the hospital and on the facility grounds.
Providence Care Hospital was recently awarded LEED® Silver certification. The LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) system rewards points for innovations that minimize the impact of new construction on humans and the environment. Green buildings are built to protect occupant health, use resources such as energy and water more efficiently, and reduce the overall impact of the building on the environment.
