Our Specialized Geriatric Services (SGS) includes a network of specialty teams in ambulatory, community outpatient and inpatient settings. They work with older adults throughout Southwestern Ontario who are experiencing functional decline, frailty and complex health concerns.

At Parkwood Institute, our Rehabilitation Program includes inpatient, outpatient and community services for people with an acquired brain injury, amputation, spinal cord injury and stroke or neurological diagnosis.

How are we doing?

96% responded positively when asked if doctors, nurses or other hospital staff talked with them about whether they have help when they leave the hospital.
