Jo-Anne Palkovits,
President & CEO

Welcome to our new website that allows you quicker and easier access to the information you are searching for about St. Joseph’s Health Centre, St. Joseph’s Villa, St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre, and Villa St. Gabriel Villa.

You can find information on both of our 128 bed long term care facilities, namely, St. Joseph’s Villa and Villa St. Gabriel Villa; as well as our 64 bed rehabilitative care centre, called St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre on our new site.

It truly is an honour for me to lead this great organization. Leadership is the humblest of roles in a Catholic health care organization whose mission is to faithfully continue to respond to the needs of those we serve; our patients and residents; and the unmet needs within our community. It is my sincere pleasure to serve as President & CEO to our patients and their families at St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre, Administrator to our residents and their families at both the Villas, and as a leader to all of our staff, physicians, allied health professionals and volunteers at all sites.

We thank you for placing your trust in us for one of the most important decisions you will make . . .where to place your loved one for the highest quality of long-term and rehabilitative care. St. Joseph’s Health Centre’s vision is to be the leaders in continuing care, long-term care and rehabilitative care.

We have assembled an exceptional inter-professional health care team at all of our sites, dedicated to helping our patients and residents achieve their maximum potential for quality of life. I encourage you to meet and speak with these professionals. We are here to serve.

We remain committed to upholding the highest and safest standard of quality care and believe in being accountable to our community by regularly updating and posting our patient and resident safety indicators on our website.

I encourage you to peruse our sites and I look forward to your comments and input.

Thank you for your ongoing valued support.

Kind regards
