For more than 129 years, Homewood has helped people cope with the devastating effects of mental illness and addiction. A fully accredited and award-winning facility, Homewood is Canada’s unsurpassed medical leader in addiction and mental health treatment.

Homewood saves lives. More than 4,000 patients benefit from our unique and highly specialized programs each year:

  • Addiction Program
  • Integrated Mood and Anxiety Program
  • Eating Disorders Program
  • Program for Traumatic Stress Recovery
  • Substance Abuse and Trauma Safety Program (concurrent treatment of trauma and addiction)
  • Program for Older Adults (mood disorders and dementias)
  • Comprehensive Psychiatric Care Program (chronic and persistent mental illness)
  • Emergency Services
  • Community Outreach Programs

Located in a beautiful 50-acre setting on the banks of the Speed River, Homewood provides a holistic approach to care that is outcomes-focused and addresses each patient’s physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs. In-depth treatment is provided by an intra-professional treatment team committed to the highest standards of quality care.

A Rewarding Career Experience

Our 312-bed facility offers nine programs treating a range of mental health and addiction issues. Nurses are valued members of Homewood’s intra-professional treatment teams, providing direct patient care through

the therapeutic patient-nurse relationship in a caring, safe and compassionate environment.

A Culture of Excellence

Homewood employs 650 staff, including more than 300 clinicians and 25 physicians.

We promote excellence among our team. Our programs are staffed by fully qualified and experienced professionals. In addition, Homewood’s management staff are highly skilled leaders, many of whom have earned master’s level university degrees and are Certified Health Care Executives through the Canadian College of Health Leaders.

Professional Development

As a teaching hospital, we are committed to education and continuous improvement. Many of our physicians maintain specialty designations within their field of expertise, and Homewood’s Registered Nurses are provided with educational resources and funding opportunities to pursue the Canadian Nurses Association Certification in Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing. Homewood is also a strong supporter of both the New Graduate Initiative and the Late Career Initiative.


Professional Development

Homewood’s Telemedicine Program provides educational resources to all staff and allows for the integration of a clinic-based treatment opportunity within our Local Health Integration Network (LHIN.) Always progressive, Homewood is also pursuing Telemedicine use outside of the LHIN.

Research for a Better Future

Homewood is part of Schlegel Health Care, a family-owned health care organization committed to providing quality care for older adults and enhancing the continuum of care through innovative research initiatives.

The Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging (RIA), a partnership with the University of Waterloo, links research, training and practice to improve care and quality of life for seniors.

The Homewood Research Institute works to analyse health care trends and to promote evidence-based practices through research and improvement of mental health programs across all sectors of the health care system.

Accreditation and Awards

Homewood was the proud recipient of the 2010 Canada Awards for Excellence – Order of Excellence Award in Quality and Healthy Workplace. In 2012, Homewood received Accreditation with Exemplary Standing, the highest level awarded by Accreditation Canada.
