Casey House, a pioneer in HIV/AIDS health care and palliative care in Toronto, Ont., recently announced that construction of a 58,000-square-foot redevelopment project has begun at the City’s Jarvis St. and Isabella St. intersection. The $32-million development involves the renovation of an existing heritage property and the construction of a new and improved contemporary health care addition.
“There are more people living with HIV/AIDS in Toronto today than ever before,” says Stephanie Karapita, Casey House CEO. “The new building will allow Casey House to expand our capacity and introduce a new model of health care delivery for our clients who desperately need help in managing the many challenges of living with HIV/AIDS.”
The new facility, to be built and financed by Bird Construction, will include:
- 14 private in-patient beds;
- Home care program office space;
- Therapy rooms and day health program community space; and
- New administrative and support services spaces.
Designed by Canadian architect Siamak Hariri, the project will be constructed to provide clients with plenty of natural lighting, community spaces and greenery.
Construction will be completed in late 2016.
