About our program

We are the largest veterans' care facility in Canada. Working in close partnership with Veterans Affairs Canada, we offer long term and complex hospital care to 500 veterans from the Second World War and Korean War. Residents live as independently as possible in Kilgour wing, and in the George Hees wing within a supportive environment, when their needs can no longer be met in the community.

Sunnybrook officially opened as a war veteran's hospital in 1948 (learn more about our history). We are proud and consider it an honour to care for Canada's veterans, the courageous men and women who served our country in the name of peace and freedom.

Resident care is divided into three main categories: physical support (including care for veterans who have had a stroke, Parkinson's disease or other chronic illness), cognitive support (early to later stage dementia care), and palliative care (for veterans and the community at large). Along with our specialized cognitive support care units in both K-wing and L-wing, the Dorothy Macham Home also provides innovative dementia care for 10 veteran residents who have challenging or aggressive behaviours due to dementia.
