Reactivation Care Centre Offers a Bridge for Patients

By Humber River Hospital

On Sunday December 16, Humber River Hospital (HRH), along with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care’s support, opened a second Reactivation Care Centre (RCC) at our Church Street site. The RCC at Church Street provides specialized care, focused on reactivation, for patients who no longer need acute care and are awaiting transfer to an appropriate facility.

The Church site opened with 34 new beds for HRH patients and 60 beds for Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre patients. Phase two, scheduled to open spring 2019, will provide an additional 120 beds to other GTA hospitals. When complete, the Church site will accommodate up to 214 ALC patients. These new beds represent an important step towards reducing wait times and ending hallway medicine in Ontario.

In addition, the HRH nephrology department expanded its services to include a new 12-station dialysis unit at the Church site. As a result, the dialysis unit will support up to 72 patients, including admitted ALC patients.

Humber River Hospital now provides acute inpatient care to 722 patients (Wilson, 656; Finch site, 32; Church site, 34) with management and service responsibility for three hospitals and 1100 beds.
