Mental Health Unit Equipment Campaign
Inspired by Hope
This October, we will be opening the doors to Queensway Carleton Hospital’s beautiful, new, sun-filled Mental Health In-Patient Unit. The Unit will be the first space to open to patients with the remainder of the project expected to be completed in 2023. When complete, this initiative will
double the size of this important mental health facility.
This project is a reality, thanks in part to the outstanding generosity of our hospital supporters. Your thoughtful donations are ensuring patients in need of acute mental healthcare have access to the very best treatment, close to home.
