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.

We also provide palliative care for veterans and the community at large, and our Dorothy Macham Home provides leading-edge, innovative dementia care for veterans with challenging behaviours due to Alzheimer's Disease and other dementias.
