The Sherbourne Health Centre Infirmary is a short-term
healthcare unit where people of all genders who are homeless or underhoused may
stay while recovering from an acute medical condition, illness or injury. The
Infirmary program provides a safe space where clients are able to rest and
recover in a comfortable, supportive environment.
Health care is provided by a multi-disciplinary team including consulting physicians, nurses and a case manager for homeless and underhoused persons. It operates seven days a week, 24 hours per day, providing recuperative and holistic health care to such people who are expected to recover in a short period of time from a medical condition and do not require hospital care.
The Sherbourne Health Centre Infirmary program is intended to augment already existing health care available through hospital and community sites. Our intent is to enhance the recuperative or recovery options for people who are homeless or underhoused, with a focus on individuals with health issues requiring short-term stays. The Infirmary program is not intended to replace other needed forms of health care such as emergency or urgent assessment, crisis, mental health or addiction services.
