The recreational therapy staff, along with other rehabilitation professionals encourages patients to explore a wide range of outdoor activities. This process is incorporated into the rehabilitation program at our hospital, and continues once patients are discharged back to their homes and communities.

Current and former patients, as well as individuals with disabilities living in the community, are encouraged to participate in a range of recreational activities.


All activities are supervised by trained staff, taking into account individual needs and abilities. Equipment is adapted as necessary and patients are encouraged to utilize newly developed skills and techniques acquired through rehabilitation.

Registration: Watch for 2014 forms!
