VSGV painting by Terry VendettiVilla St. Gabriel Villa is a 128-bed long-term care facility located in the community of Chelmsford, in the City of Greater Sudbury.   It is situated on Regional Road 15 in Chelmsford.  Villa St. Gabriel Villa continues in the legacy of Excellence in Aging and Wellness that was started in 2003 by St. Joseph’s Health Centre.

St. Gabriel’s Villa of Sudbury was provincially incorporated and received its letter patent as a non-profit corporation on January 22, 2010.  The objective of St. Gabriel’s Villa was to establish, equip, staff, maintain, and operate a Long Term Care Facility.

In response to the MoHLTC 2007 Long-Term Bed Allocation RFP, SJHC received approval to build a 128-bed LT home in Chelmsford.  The SJHC Board of Directors was committed to building this facility which responded to the aging population and long-standing under serviced needs of this predominantly rural francophone community.

The project expanded the capacity of the community to address the health needs of seniors and local health care workers and facility staff who chose to reside in the community thereby becoming home/property owners and increasing the local tax base and overall economic activity in the community.

Designed to fit into the natural topography of the Chelmsford landscape, the Villa St. Gabriel Villa has spacious living areas and beautiful dining areas with large windows for outstanding viewing.  Its indoor and outdoor sacred spaces include a chapel, and beautiful healing gardens.

The Town Square at the heart of Villa St. Gabriel Villa features a hair salon, a café and ample sitting areas for visiting and gatherings.

Villa St. Gabriel Villa has a Long-Term Care Home Service Accountability Agreement (2013-16) in place with the North East LHIN.  On December 11, 2013, Villa St. Gabriel Villa was enacted into Ontario Regulation 346/13 made under the French Language Services Act, as a fully designated French language service facility.
