Toronto Private Hospital’s Rehabilitation Unit is a 27-bed inpatient facility, purpose-built to provide services for people of any age needing rehabilitation and/or pain management.

Our extensive rehabilitation services are not limited to patients staying within our hospital. Day programs are available to people in the community, and rehabilitation is tailored to an individual’s needs.

Inpatient Accommodation

The rehabilitation unit has 15 single rooms and six twin rooms – all with ensuites and air-conditioning.

Rooms are light and spacious and offer a tranquil atmosphere both at night and during the day when rest is needed between therapy sessions. The rooms are designed to provide a safe and pleasant environment where clients can interact with their doctors, nurses or therapist in private.


Facilities include:

  • Physiotherapy and gymnasium area
  • Occupational therapy area
  • Onsite hydrotherapy pool

Assisted Daily Living Suite

The assisted daily living suite is designed as a mini-apartment and includes a kitchen, combined bedroom and lounge, and a bathroom. It is ideal for patients who are ready to return home but need a little help to regain their confidence to live independently at home. Arrangements can be made for the patient’s carer to stay overnight and ascertain the appropriateness of discharge plans.

The assisted daily living suite also allows the rehabilitation team to monitor and assess patients for safe night independence. It can offer patients and their family the assurance they need to enable a smooth transition from hospital to home.
