West Park Healthcare Centre
The Long-Term Care Centre is situated in a twenty-seven acre park like setting in Toronto. West Park Healthcare Centre is a Rehabilitation and Complex Continuing Care Hospital, which provides a variety of services to individuals on an inpatient and outpatient basis. The Centre is complemented by a new Long-Term Care facility featuring outdoor spaces for the Resident Home Areas.
The 200 bed long- term care home is the most recent development at the Centre. The two ground floor resident home areas have immediate access to secure courtyards with two upper terraces overlooking this space. The central public court complete with heritage preserved columns is surrounded by a colonnade.
The goals for the design of the outdoor spaces were to be as home-like as possible. The small touches in furniture selection, lighting, plants and wall decoration all contribute to the feeling of an intimate residential atmosphere.
