Providence Care is Southeastern Ontario’s leading provider of specialized care in aging, mental health and rehabilitation.

Continuing the legacy of our Founders, the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul, Providence Care consists of Providence Care Hospital and Providence Manor long-term care home, as well as community sites across the region.

The inpatient Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Program at Providence Care Hospital serves adults who have experienced a spinal cord injury (SCI)/disease either due to a traumatic injury or non-traumatic condition. The program offers both high and low intensity rehabilitation to patients admitted from Kingston, Belleville, Brockville and surrounding areas.

The unit serves approximately 50 inpatients/year. Patients are served by a multidisciplinary team consisting of physiatrists, hospitalists, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and assistants, social worker, pharmacist, behavioural technologist, dietitian, speech-language pathologist and spiritual health practitioners.

Co-ordination of community services upon discharge is also provided. Some patients continue their therapy program in the outpatient programs offered in our Rehabilitation Therapy Centre. While involved in the inpatient and outpatient programming, patients may also participate in our hydrotherapy programs.
