North York General Hospital (NYGH) will open its new NYGH Finch Site Reactivation Care Centre (RCC) located at 555 Finch Ave West on December 17, 2022.
The RCC is designed to support patients who no longer need acute (hospital) care to safely transition to their next level of care, which may be long-term care, home or another setting. The new RCC allows more patients to receive the right care in the right setting and frees up hospital beds for patients who need them. The new seniors’ health service at the Finch Site is part of NYGH’s growing network of seniors’ services across North York.
The RCC is designed to help seniors to be as independent as possible with the support of physiotherapy, occupational therapy, recreational therapy and other services. Patients will be supported each step of the way through a collaborative plan tailored to each patient’s individual needs.
The interprofessional RCC team includes nurses, allied health, social workers, physicians, nurse practitioners, and others, along with LOFT Community Services (Leap of Faith Together) who will help to provide safe care to those with expressive behaviours related to dementia and other conditions.
Patients will receive care in a comfortable and healing environment that promotes privacy, dignity and family participation. The new RCC offers large, bright patient rooms and family waiting lounges, dedicated space for recreational therapy, and spacious washrooms. Interpretation services and cultural food options will also be made available for patients from diverse communities.
