Located on the former Hogarth Westmount Hospital site, the Centre of Excellence for Integrated Senior’s Services (CEISS) is a new, purpose-built care campus providing vulnerable, often elderly and/or cognitively impaired clientele with a range of services and specialized support.
The CEISS project includes a new 416-bed long-term care home, a 32-bed addition to an existing LTC home, a new 132-unit supportive housing apartment for seniors and an enclosed link between these facilities featuring a range of therapy and clinic spaces, administrative offices and a pharmacy. Addressing increasing challenges facing residents and staff in seniors housing, CEISS is highly progressive in its design. The new long-term care facility features a 64-bed specialized behavioural health unit for individuals with severe responsive behaviours. It also includes a community multi-purpose room, garden café, chapel, beauty salon, seminar rooms, an adult day facility and children’s daycare, to create a comprehensive hub that meets the needs of residents and the community at large.
CEISS aims to create a normalized care environment by privileging strong indoor-outdoor connections, the healing quality of natural light and the dignity of choice. Is also balances critical sustainable strategies with high levels of durability to achieve LEED Gold certification.
