In-patient Medicine Units
The Medicine Program has two in-patient units, with a total of 66 beds. The units are supported by a team of healthcare professionals who provide individualized care which includes regular interaction with family members and loved ones. The team's goal is to assist each patient with their recovery and to ensure their smooth transition home or to more suitable accommodations in the community.
One 38-bed unit focuses on diagnosing and caring for patients with respiratory, gastroenterology (digestive system) and endocrinology (internal glands, e.g., pancreas) conditions. Registered Nurses and Registered Practical Nurses with expertise in general medicine care support this area.
The other unit, with 28-beds, is designed for patients with neurological disorders such as strokes. A highly specialized team cares for these patients during the acute or immediate phase following their stroke (generally 3 – 7 days).
In order to support our team in their commitment to this high level of care, we make every effort to provide them with educational and training opportunities to enhance their expertise. One such opportunity is an 8-week respiratory course designed for staff through the joint efforts of Southlake Regional Health Centre, Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital, Markham Stouffville Hospital and Seneca College.
