  • The design of the new hospital will be in line with modern approaches to health care: fully accessible hallways, bright living spaces and areas for group activities and gatherings.
  • Geriatric medicine programs - including the day hospital - are expected to be located on the ground floor of the new hospital, meaning easier access for older patients.
  • New, efficient rehabilitation space will mean more people can benefit from occupational and physical therapy after an accident, an injury or surgery.
  • There will be improved learning and research facilities - classrooms and all-purpose rooms to allow Providence Care to offer more educational opportunities to staff and community partners.
