New Health Centre

Trillium HealthWorks goes beyond our hospital walls to include partnership projects that will increase access to important community-based services.

In partnership with Infrastructure Ontario and Partners Community Health, Trillium Health Partners is leading the build of a new health centre on Speakman Drive in Mississauga that will function as an interconnected community for seniors and caregivers, providing a broad range of services and programs that meet the needs of those it serves.

Long-term care home

The first phase of the new health centre includes a 632-bed long-term care home that will address the current lack of access to long-term care in this community and create capacity in hospitals where many patients wait for long-term care placement.

The long-term care home will be operated by Partners Community Health – a new, not-for-profit organization focused on bringing health care services together around the needs of people living in Mississauga and West Toronto.

Features of the long-term care home:

  • The latest standards for long-term care home design and safety, including: private bedrooms; appropriately-sized lounge and dining areas; outdoor terraces and spaces; and, enhancements to HVAC including capability for 100% fresh air supply
  • Two behavioural support units specially-designed to safely care for people who live with advanced dementia A day program for older adults who require regular enrolment in activities and services focused on maintaining their independence in order to prevent or delay the need for hospital or long-term care
  • A 16-unit dialysis program space for long-term care residents and members of the community living with chronic kidney disease

The long-term care homes are part of the Ontario Government’s Accelerated Build Pilot Program, which aims to deliver new long-term care homes years sooner than traditional development projects through the use of hospital-owned land, rapid procurement and modular construction.

Future phases of the health centre include a residential hospice (built and operated by Heart House Hospice) and a health services building. For more information on Heart House Hospice please visit hearthousehospice.com.
