Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare is set to officially reveal the newly renovated, state-of-the-art Rehabilitation and Wellness Centre on Wednesday.

Located in the Tayfour Building, the space formally known as the Cardiac Wellness Centre finished its year-long renovation in October 2015 and will continue to serve patients in need of cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation.

“This is a significant event for Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare. It supports our organization’s vision for a Centre of Excellence in Restorative Rehabilitation,” said Bill Marra, Vice President External Affairs, Innovation & Philanthropy.

The Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation program currently serves a roster of 500 patients and 25,000 patient visits per year, from ages 25 to 95

The new 1.7 million 9,800 square foot space is more than double the size of its former location and is equipped with brand new technology including cardio and exercise equipment as well as a walking track.

The renovation was entirely paid for through donations that would not have been possible without the fundraising efforts and donations from key community events and partners such as; Mr. Tim Lumley, The Estate of Angelo Santarossa, the Petro Family and the Heart Breaker Challenge Event as well as the Probert Family who hosts the Bob Probert Memorial Ride.
