About Us


Who We Are

new aerial 2009 twitterProvidence provides leadership within the healthcare system by helping people, often the most vulnerable, access and receive the care they need in the most effective way possible.

Through Providence Hospital, we help adults of all ages rehabilitate after strokes, orthopaedic surgery, lower limb amputations or other complex medical conditions generally associated with aging. With the support of our partners in acute care and the community, we provide excellence in inpatient and outpatient rehab, flow and care. 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.

In our Hospital, we also help people approaching the end of life by providing state-of-the-art care in a supportive environment.  Our Palliative Care program now offers full Front-Hospital-Outsideaccess with seven-day/week patient admissions.  We also offer short-term respite admissions for palliative patients who require inpatient care before returning home to familiar surroundings to spend their final days.

In our Adult Day Program for people with moderate to severe dementia, we have the capacity to care for the most vulnerable clients, around the clock.  Families, as well as the general community, have access to the support and education resources in our Scotiabank Learning Centre.

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.

Providence Healthcare’s Catholic legacy dates back to 1857 when the Sisters of St. Joseph founded the original House of Providence. Today, this tradition lives on at Providence Healthcare, and is reflected in our mission and values, our commitment to compassion and our excellence in care.
