Environmental Attendant - Alternative Level Of Care (Church)

Hospital Toronto Humber River Regional Hospital

Join our Environmental Services team as we work together to create a cleaner, safe work environment and patient care setting for our facility.


At Humber River Hospital we continue to advance the important role we play as we advocate for healthcare initiatives in the diverse community we serve.

In December 2017, the Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), in partnership with Humber River Hospital, North York General Hospital, Southlake Regional Health Centre, Mackenzie Health and Markham Stouffville Hospital, launched an integrated, innovative model of care delivery called the Reactivation Care Centre (RCC) – A Central LHIN Hospitals Collaborative. The RCC is located in the former Humber River Hospital Finch site, which was extensively renovated for this new shared facility. Each of the hospitals has its own unit which is staffed and operated as an extension of its hospital. Humber River Hospital operates one 32 bed unit.

 Building on the success of the first collaborative, planning is currently underway for the opening of the second Reactivation Care Centre in the Church site of Humber River Hospital that will include a 34-bed patient care unit. The unit will provide specialized care for patients who no longer require acute care, but are waiting in hospital for transfer to an appropriate alternate discharge destination such as convalescent, slow stream rehabilitation, or long-term care.
