Southbridge is planning to build a new 160-bed long-term care home at our existing Hope Street Terrace location. To do so, an abandoned building needs to be demolished.
If the abandoned building (which has been empty for 12 years) is historically designated, Southbridge cannot develop on this site and will be forced to move the existing beds and jobs.

Frequently Asked Questions
Southbridge would like to build a new, state-of-the art, 160-bed long-term care home in Port Hope. The Ministry of Health has mandated that the Home be redeveloped to meet their specific requirements by 2025. The current site is large enough to accommodate the new building provided the abandoned former hospital building is demolished.
If the abandoned building (which has been empty for 12 years) is historically designated, it will not be possible to proceed with this plan on this site. This will force residents, their families, and staff to travel longer distances to access care, visit loved ones or provide the necessary care our residents and your neighbours require.
