about providence healthcare
Last year, Cuisine & Cuvée raised $250,000 (net) in support of patients and programs at Providence Healthcare. With a 160 year old legacy, Providence is a leader in providing rehabilitation, palliative care, long-term care and community programs in Toronto. We provide care in three areas:
In our Hospital, we help adults of all ages rehabilitate after strokes, orthopaedic surgery, lower limb amputations or other complex medical conditions generally associated with aging. More than 5,000 people benefit from our innovative approaches each year. Our Ambulatory Services and Clinics promote ongoing recovery, healthy living, and sustained well-being to people in the GTA and beyond. Our Hospital also offers palliative care, helping people approaching the end of life by providing state-of-the-art care in a supportive environment. We offer seven-day/week patient admissions, as well as short-term respite admissions for palliative patients who require inpatient care before returning home to familiar surroundings to spend their final days.
Cardinal Ambrozic Houses of Providence
Our long-term care home, the Cardinal Ambrozic Houses of Providence, is home for each of our 288 residents. With a focus on quality of life and the implementation of best practices, the Houses provide the highest standards of comfort, care and safety for our residents.
Adult Day Program
In our Adult Day Program for people who live in the community with moderate to severe dementia, we have the capacity to care for the most vulnerable clients, around the clock.
In addition, families and the general community have access to individual and group support, as well as education resources through our Scotiabank Learning Centre.
With a Catholic legacy that dates back to 1857 when the Sisters of St. Joseph founded the original House of Providence in downtown Toronto as a refuge for the sick, poor, elderly and homeless, we work hard to ensure this tradition lives on at Providence and reflects the key attributes that have become our promise:
Helping people. Healing lives.
