St. Joseph's Continuing Care Centre, a registered charitable institution, is owned and operated by the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph. The Centre is composed of continuing complex care at the Janet Macdonell Pavilion, 840 McConnell Avenue, and long term care at St. Joseph's Villa, 14 York Street. The facility is non denominational and bilingual in its policy.
For more than a century, the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph never failed to recognize the needs of the sick, the elderly and the very young. Their legacy of holistic and compassionate care is reflected in our Mission, Values and Vision statements. By their example, we are committed to improve the quality of life of seniors and adults affected by loss of autonomy through injury or illness.
The generosity of our Sisters was manifest in their courageous decision to transfer the Hotel Dieu Hospital site to the Cornwall community. In July 2003, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care officially accepted the proposal of the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph that would result in a new community hospital on the McConnell Avenue site. Since January 2004, the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph have continued to serve the Cornwall community by caring for the elderly and special needs residents at St. Joseph's Continuing Care Centre.
The Centre is in the process of restructuring services and building a modern facility to consolidate all continuing complex care on the York Street site. Here the Sisters began their ministry of health care and founded the first Hotel Dieu Hospital in the home of Sir John Sandfield Macdonald, >Ivy Hall=, in the spring of 1897.
St. Joseph's Continuing Care Centre is proud to be accredited by the Canadian Council of Health Facilities Accreditation. Our Centre is a member of the RHSJ Health System which includes hospitals and long term care facilities in Ontario, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, Canada; Illinois and Wisconsin, U.S.A.; and the Dominican Republic.
May the same spirit of love, concern and dedication that motivated the first Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph animate each member of our Centre as we meet the diverse needs of our residents and families.
