Since then, St. Joseph's Care Group (SJCG) has responded to the unmet needs of the community by changing over time and delivering new and innovative programs.
Programs and services are provided throughout the community and at 8 different sites, including: Balmoral Centre, Behavioural Sciences Centre, Hogarth Riverview Manor, Lakehead Psychiatric Hospital, Sister Margaret Smith Centre, St. Joseph's Health Centre, St. Joseph's Heritage and St. Joseph's Hospital.
St. Joseph's Care Group's broad program areas are: Physical Rehabilitation & Complex Care, Mental Health & Addiction Services, and Long-Term Care Services. SJCG has approximately 1700 employees, 400 volunteers and an annual operating budget of $125 Million (Canadian).
