About us

Providence Healthcare is a leader in senior’s care, rehabilitation, palliative and long-term care. The hospital’s inpatient and outpatient programs help adults of all ages rehabilitate after stroke, orthopaedic surgery, and other complex conditions associated with aging.

Providence is one of three main sites of Unity Health Toronto, a Catholic health care organisation accredited with exemplary standing by Accreditation Canada. Unity Heatlh’s services span the City of Toronto and range from primary care to highly specialized care for complex medical cases, post-acute care, rehabilitation, palliative and long-term care. We advance excellence in health care through education, research and innovation.

Who we are


We are a home away from home at our Adult Day Program, a social club created by our expert staff to offer services to individuals with moderate to severe dementia and respite for their loved ones and caregivers.


We provide best-in-class support, care and resources for seniors and their loved ones. This includes the Scotiabank Learning Centre, a resource centre for families learning to cope with life-altering illnesses such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease, dementia, arthritis and Parkinson’s.


We are a leader in rehabilitation services, offering a range of interdisciplinary services to help patients recover from illness, injury or surgery. Our research in ageing, rehabilitation medicine, community care and dementia is helping to position Providence as a model in the field.


We operate a long-term care home helping hundreds of residents maintain a high quality of life. In March 2021, the Ontario government announced the allocation of 180 new long-term care spaces at The Cardinal Ambrozic Houses of Providence as part of our proposed new Campus of Care and Senior’s Health Program.


We offer compassionate, quality care to all in need – a tradition instilled by our founders, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto more than 100 years ago. We affirm the inherent dignity, worth and equality of every human being in our care, education and research.

Keeping Our Site Clean

Providence is located in the heart of Scarborough, just steps from some of the city’s most vibrant residential and commercial streets. Whether you’re visiting the site to work, learn, receive care or visit a loved one, it’s important that we treat the site and community with kindness and respect. One way to do this is by keeping the neighbourhood clean. Please be mindful of your garbage and dispose of the following items properly:

  • Cigarette butts go in cigarette butt disposals on City of Toronto garbage cans
  • Masks and gloves go in garbage bins
  • Pop cans go in recycling bins
  • Organic waste should be placed in compost bins

Thank you for helping us keep Unity Health and our surrounding neighbourhoods clean. To learn more about how to dispose of various materials, please use the Waste Wizard on the City of Toronto website.

As of April 1, 2021, St. Michael’s Foundation amalgamated with Providence Healthcare Foundation and all receipts will be issued by St. Michael’s Foundation.

We are pleased to let you know that your donation will go directly to the organization and priority that you have designated.
