Complex Care

Compassionate care for patients and families

The Complex Care Program provides compassionate care for patients and families who are dealing with a “life-altering” complex condition resultant from injury or disease. Our team of professionals work together to support our patients’ goals for care and/or meet their needs for continuing care.


Complex Care is a part of the health services continuum designed to provide medical management, skilled nursing and a range of interdisciplinary, diagnostic, therapeutic and technological services to achieve patient identified goals and optimize the quality of life of individuals who have a chronic complex condition.

Transitional and end-of-life care

Complex Care provides transitional care to support individuals needs in anticipation of a return to a community setting (e.g., home or other residential living) when possible; other patients are here to receive palliative and end-of-life care. The length of time patients spend in Parkwood Institute's Complex Care Program varies according to the patient’s need.

Complex Care also provides Residential Management for individuals requiring long term mechanical ventilation.
