Infirmary

  • The Sherbourne Infirmary is a short-term health care unit where people of all genders who are homeless or under-housed can stay while recovering from an acute medical condition, illness or injury. The Infirmary is a safe space where clients can rest and recover in a comfortable, supportive environment.

    Health care is provided by a multi-disciplinary team including consulting Physicians, Registered Nurses, Community Health Workers, an Intake Nurse and a Case Manager. The Infirmary operates 7 days a week, 24 hours per day, providing recuperative and holistic health care to such people who are expected to recover in a short period of time from a medical condition and do not need hospital care.

    The Infirmary augments existing health care available through hospital and community sites. Our intent is to enhance the recuperative or recovery options for people who are homeless or under-housed, with a focus on individuals with health issues requiring short-term stays. The Infirmary is not intended to replace other needed forms of health care such as emergency or urgent assessment, crisis, mental health or addiction services.

    We encourage you to read our referral guide, which will answer many questions about the program.
