Make a donation to our expansion that will include 36 rehabilitation beds:
St. Joseph’s Health Centre has received approval from the province to build a $20-million expansion that will include 36 rehabilitation beds for older adults in its first phase. The second phase will include another 36 beds for a total of 72.
The new expansion, which will be located on Lasalle Boulevard, is meant to replace a temporary set-up at the city’s Clarion Hotel, where there are 60 beds for alternate level of care (ALC) patients.
The province will cover 90 per cent of the cost for the project, but we need to raise $2.5 million to cover costs for the remainder of the first phase.
This much-needed project will mean older Ontarians in Sudbury and the northeast can receive the rehabilitation care they need in the right place in their communities. The ultimate goal for the project is for patients to eventually be discharged back to their homes once they’ve gotten the rehabilitation they need.
This fundraising campaign which also includes 50/50 draws requires community support to bring this project to fruition.
