A look inside Canada's largest veterans care facility

Sunnybrook has a long and distinguished history of caring for our country’s war heroes. In 1948, the hospital was originally founded to care for soldiers, sailors and airmen returning from the Second World War.

Today, the Sunnybrook Veterans Centre is the largest veterans care facility in Canada, providing specialized, complex continuing and long term care to 475 veterans who served in the Second World War and the Korean War.

Dedicated interprofessional care teams work collaboratively with each other, and with residents and families to deliver the best quality of care and assist each veteran resident in achieving his or her best possible life experience.
