St. Joseph’s opens new 30-bed unit

Features include shared therapy and dining spaces

St. Joseph’s new Reactivation Care Centre

There’s a bright, new space where St. Joseph’s Health Centre patients are receiving care – at 200 Church Street.

“St. Joseph’s Reactivation Care Centre – Church unit opened on May 5, welcoming patients who need a little more therapy before being able to return home, to rehab or another care location.

“We’re so excited to have this beautiful unit to treat our patients in,” said Melissa Morey-Hollis, administrative program director of Medicine and Seniors Care.

“It’s specialized for those patients who are close to moving to the next stage of their care journey and it’s got some great features including shared therapy spaces and communal areas where patients will eat together.”

The new unit is part of the provincial government’s plan to end “hallway medicine” – hospitals across the province are operating at full or close-to-full capacity, meaning some patients are receiving care in unconventional spaces, like hallways. St. Joseph’s often experiences surge periods where patients wait longer than usual to be admitted to a bed on one of our units.

200 Church St., where the new unit is located, was previously part of Humber River Hospital. With government funding, it’s been renovated to accommodate patients from multiple different hospitals, also including Humber and Sunnybrook. The patients there no longer require acute care in a hospital so the focus is on occupational, physical and recreational therapy to get them back to their normal.

“It’s a fantastic model because many of the resources in the building are shared, but all of the care on our unit is provided by St. Joseph’s employees,” said Morey-Hollis.

“Patients there are receiving the same great care they’ve experienced at the health centre — with a special focus on that last bit of recovery before they’re well enough to leave.”
