Regional Rehabilitation Centre
Rebuilding Lives, Restoring Hope
The new Regional Rehabilitation Centre opened in September 2009. This three-storey, 106,000 square foot building consolidated rehabilitation and acquired brain injury services located in 14 different buildings across the city into one building.
The new facility is tailored to meet the needs of all rehabilitation patients. The physical environment is fully accessible to wheelchair users, and incorporates such things as gardens and transition apartments for practicing daily living skills.
It accommodates all ambulatory and outreach services and 91 inpatient beds. There are a number of indoor and outdoor exercise and practice facilities, a therapeutic pool and a full range of specialized consultative resources.
The centre is connected to the General Hospital by a bridge to allow staff and patients to move about easily. Significant landscaping of external therapy spaces on each level of the building provides a pleasant, healing environment for our patients.
