After ten years of planning, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital opened the doors to its new state-of-the-art facility at 150 Kilgour Road in Toronto in 2006.

Our building includes a number of innovative features that enables us to serve all of our clients and families under one roof. From food services, recreation areas and therapy facilities to resource centres and conference services, the opportunity to further our mandate as an organization and provide more comprehensive care to children with special needs and the general community, has never been more promising.

Below you will find more information about some of the special services featured in our building.

It aims to provide an oasis of tranquility where you can relax and have the opportunity to choose an activity at your own pace.

The Snoezelen pool creates a gently stimulating environment by combining lights, sounds and textures with the medicinal effects of a warm therapy pool.
