Parkwood Special Care Facility
St. Joseph’s Health System|London, Ontario
This hospital is part of the reconfiguration of the Provision of Mental Health Services in the Province of Ontario. This facility resolved the challenge of how to provide a new facility that is free standing and yet integrated with an existing hospital complex. It is designed to accommodate 50% expansion in beds, and clinical and support space. The hospital embodies the house, neighborhood, downtown treatment concept first advanced at the Rochester Psychiatric Center, yet is a unique response to the program and the site.
