Bridgepoint Active Healthcare

Bridgepoint Active Healthcare, a concrete expression of well-being in Canada's health network

A top Canadian provider of chronic disease and disability care, Bridgepoint Active Healthcare now leads the way in the field of care and rehabilitation.

Nicknamed the Campus of Well-being, the hospital's mission is to provide care using a new approach in a hospital that is simultaneously a public building, an urban centre and a place that brings health and community together. This original concept is designed to please and attract the community in a warm and welcoming environment. Thus, visitors and patients have access to learning centres, an auditorium, retail stores, restaurants and an outdoor terrace leading to a magnificent park.

Fitted up with furniture and vanities from Beaubois, the rooms provide a total of 464 beds and feature narrow windows that open. Extending from floor to ceiling, these windows have pop-up frames made by Beaubois and give patients a panoramic view.

In addition, there are communal dining rooms, an Internet café, a spiritual room, a roof garden, therapy and rehabilitation rooms, terraces and even a labyrinth. All are arranged to encourage patients to come out of their rooms and to motivate them to manage their limitations and their illnesses.

Beaubois enhanced almost all of these sectors with acoustic ceilings or ceilings made from ipé, a hardwood species of the African mahogany family. The masterpiece is the ceiling that begins in the lobby and extends all the way outside to form a superb marquee. An exquisite example of the team's talent.

Beaubois also worked in the old Don Jail, built in 1854 and out-of-service since 1977. Connected to the new 10-storey hospital, it now welcomes patients. With this restoration, Bridgepoint Active Health has breathed new life into a Toronto institution and created a visible symbol of their commitment to rehabilitation.

The first Toronto hospital to achieve LEED Silver certification, Bridgepoint Active Healthcare blends old and new architectural styles in its building, and utilizes the very latest and most holistic medical practices in its care services.


Sinai Health System
In 2015, Bridgepoint Active Healthcare, affiliated with the University of Toronto, combined forces with the Circle of Care and the Lunenfel Tanenbaum Research Institute to form Sinai Health System.
