Leading the way
Providence Care Hospital (PCH) is 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 care. The entire hospital has been designed to be welcoming and inclusive of all people, no matter what age, ability or needs.
PCH brings to life the concept of patient-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
The Providence Care Hospital provides a 270-bed state-of-the-art care environment for patients and clients and a modern, improved work environment for physicians, staff and volunteers.
The hospital also includes single inpatient rooms that meet current infection control standards and adjacent therapy and treatment spaces to allow patients to receive care closer to their rooms. It will also feature on-site clinics for inpatients and outpatients and improved teaching, learning and research facilities that support Providence Care’s role as a major centre for health education and research.
The redevelopment plan brings together Providence Care’s rehabilitation, complex continuing care, specialized geriatrics, palliative care.
