The Joseph & Rosalie Segal & Family Health Centre cares for people with mental-health or substance-use challenges. The facility will help mental-health and substance-use professionals provide better care to patients and their families in a more modern environment. The completed centre will create a welcoming, home-like experience for clients, including a rooftop garden deck. The facility’s anticipated opening date is fall, 2017.
The eight-storey building will consolidate inpatient and outpatient services under one roof to provide clients with the treatment, programs and skills they need to successfully resume life in the community. It will replace outdated facilities such as the former VGH Willow Chest Centre (circa 1948) and Health Centre at Vancouver General Hospital (circa 1943).
