« Back to Rehab Construction
From 2015 to 2020, FM-PRO's Planning and Redevelopment teams transformed Toronto Rehab's Lyndhurst Centre – originally constructed in the 1970s – to better serve its patients in need of spinal cord injury rehabilitation.
Lyndhurst was first built to care for Second World War veterans – a predominantly young, male patient population – suffering spinal cord injuries. More than 50 years later, and now located in Toronto's Leaside neighbourhood at 520 Sutherland Drive, its patient profile has changed dramatically, as it provides specialized rehabilitation for adults whose lives have changed due to neurological conditions, and spinal cord injuries. Both inpatient and outpatient care focuses on helping patients live as independently as possible.
With the evolution of Lyndhurst's patient population and their corresponding care, renovations were needed to address the shortcomings of dated patient bedrooms and washrooms in the 1972 building.
The Planning team started to design a more accessible space in February 2015, with construction beginning in November 2016. Renovations included:
While construction completed in November 2020, the team ensured all patient care continued safely and without interruption throughout three-and-a-half years of renovations.
