One of our clients, Journey Home Hospice
, a new care facility for people who are homeless and facing the end of life, has officially opened its doors this week, providing inclusive high-quality care to some of the city's most vulnerable citizens. This centre of excellence for homeless palliative care will advance national best practices of care delivery. In addition to hospice palliative care, staff and volunteers will have additional training in areas such as harm reduction, mental health and addictions, and trauma-informed care.
Our Rexdale Community Health Centre satellite located in the City of Toronto’s Rexdale Community Hub on Panorama Court in Rexdale is now open. We had initially done the feasibility study for the City that led to the acquisition of this former school for the purposes of the Rexdale Community Hub, so that the completion of this CHC as a major hub anchor tenant represents the culmination of nine years of background work.
We recently completed the fit-out of the new headquarters for a health sector not-for-profit provincial Crown agency, carried out through the Province of Ontario’s Infrastructure Ontario. The space, which occupies a floor of a large office building in downtown Toronto, was designed and executed on a very tight timeframe, and accommodates 165 staff, some of whom operate on a 24/7 basis, with extensive support infrastructure. Check out this link for the project profile.
The Town of Georgina has hired us as architect for their new Sutton Community Hub in the former Sutton Public School, which will undergo a $3-million renovation and redesign to accommodate workspace for non-profit organizations including Georgina Hospice, GTTI training centre, Georgina Arts Centre & Gallery, as well as a community kitchen, and a naturalization of the riverfront at the rear of the property to reinforce Sutton’s historic connection to the Black River.
, our new children’s hospice for The Philip Aziz Centre, had its open house and official opening on Tuesday June 11, 2013.
The project is the first of its kind in Toronto and one of six in Canada. The facility will meet the needs of families and children living with the challenges of a life-limiting illness such as cancer and HIV/AIDS.
This home will provide increased respite options for families and a choice of setting for medical/respite care.
The project, which incorporates the heritage restoration of the house for the Governor of the Don Jail, includes a large addition set within a public park being created on the Bridgepoint lands east of the Don River, north of Gerrard Street.
We’ve been selected by Stonegate Community Health Centre to undertake a feasibility study to determine the suitability of a building for delivery of community health services, adding to the large and growing roster of Community Health-related clients we serve.
