Alexander Pavilion Project
St. Peter's is committed to ensuring that adults with Alzheimer Disease and other dementias in our care continue to be a priority. Thanks to the provincial government and our community, these adults will soon receive care in a modern setting that is conducive to their specialized health care needs.
In January 2006, the provincial government gave St. Peter's the green light replace the hospital's outdated South Wing which currently houses the Behavioral Health Program. This project involves the construction of a new floor on the east wing of the hospital which will be called the Alexander Pavilion - in recognition of the Honourable Lincoln M. Alexander and in memory of his wife Yvonne - at the request of Margaret and Charles Juravinski.
The Juranvinski's gift of $5 million in support of the Alexander Pavilion project is the largest in our history. During the construction, St. Peter's will also have the opportunity to renovate the main level of the east wing to accommodate expanding research and education activities. The research department will be housed in the new Juravinski Research Centre in honour of Margaret and Charles. Their support will also make it possible for St. Peter's to upgrade existing rehabilitation areas and to develop a pub/lounge area to enhance patients' social opportunities.
We would like to express our most heartfelt thanks to Margaret and Charles. In addition, we would like to thank the Board of Directors of the Chedoke Health Corporation Board for their gift of $2 M; Dofasco for its gift of $250,000; Siemens Westinghouse for a gift of $100,000; and all the other individuals and organizations in our community whose contributions have made this project a reality.
