The purpose of this Humber River Hospital (HRH) Reactivation Centre is to fill the gap in Ontario’s healthcare system by providing an innovative model that allows patients waiting to be remitted into Palliative Care Units or Senior’s Centre facilities with proper care all the while reducing Alternate Level of Care (ALC) pressures on acute care hospitals within the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (TC-LHIN).
A new HRH Hospital opened in 2015 and all patient units at this existing facility were relocated. As a result, this building in north-west Toronto was completely vacant for 2 years.
Compass was contracted to complete the renovation of 4 floors to accommodate 130 beds, including all new equipment and fixturing in patent rooms. Construction took place over 2 phases. Phase 1 construction involved an expedited schedule to allow for 3 floors to be opened and occupied in 4 months. Following a few month schedule gap, Phase 2 construction of the remaining floor was completed in 3 months.
With strong support from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and the TC-LHIN, HRH Reactivation Centre aims to expand the current level of support and services available to ALC clients.
