St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre is Expanding

Press Release

Sudbury – June 2.22

On May 5, 2022, St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre (SJCCC) received approval from the Ministry of Health for a planning grant to support 36 new rehabilitation beds in a new building in Sudbury.

Today, SJCCC is pleased to announce that work on new building expansion will officially start at 319 Lasalle Blvd, Sudbury with the goal of admitting its first patients in December 2023.

SJCCC at 319 Lasalle Sudbury

“This project will have a positive impact on chronically high ALC pressures in our community and address a long-standing under supply of rehabilitative care beds in the City of Greater Sudbury that existed pre-pandemic. More significantly, individuals, and particularity frail older adults, will have an opportunity for rehabilitation so they can continue living independently in the community.”

Kari Gervais
President & CEO, St. Joseph’s Health Centre

“Again, we applaud the Ontario government for supporting our community with much-needed rehab beds. When built, they will provide critical capacity and enable us to move patients out of temporary spaces such as the Clarion Hotel. We are excited to begin planning to bring these state-of-the art beds online as quickly as possible.”

This $19.87M capital project will have significant impact on our local health care system. In the months ahead, SJCCC will launch a capital campaign to raise the required local cost share in the amount of $2.7M.

St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre of Sudbury is a 64-bed rehabilitative care facility and the only stand-alone specialty hospital in the Northeast. In collaboration with Health Science North (HSN) and other health system partners, SJCCC opened an additional 60 beds at a temporary Transitional Care Unit at the Clarion Hotel in Sudbury in April 2020. SJCCC continues to operate these beds and is anticipating relocating 36 of them to the new Lasalle location once it is ready for occupancy.

Paolo Massimiliano, Regency Bakery and Anthony Rocca, Doyle Dodge present a cheque in the amount of $1,200 to Kari Gervais, President and CEO. Funds will be placed towards St. Joseph’s Villa.

Background:
In honour of the Feast of St. Joseph, which was celebrated on March 19, 2022, Regency Bakery in partnership with Doyle Dodge donated $1.00 from every Zeppole sold between March 15 to 19, 2022 to the St. Joseph’s Foundation of Sudbury.
The Feast of St. Joseph is observed by Christians in commemoration of Saint Joseph, husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary and legal father of Jesus Christ. Taking place during the period of Lent, a time of fasting, the holiday is traditionally a meatless feast in Europe.
Zeppoles are little fried dough balls that are coated in powdered sugar and filled with vanilla custard and amarena cherries – an Italian delight!
“We are grateful to Regency Bakery and to Doyle Dodge for this generous donation. On behalf of our residents and staff, thank you!”
Kari Gervais, President and CEO
