The new Stonegate Community Health Centre rising from the ground in the “Shoppes at Stonegate” development will open in the Summer of 2018. We’re asking our south Etobicoke community members and businesses to help ensure the doors open on a beautiful, functional Health Centre that everyone can use.
The new health centre features: twice the space of our current facility; more exam rooms; a bigger dental suite; a demonstration kitchen; more group space for a myriad of community programs; and, for the first time, lots of windows and an elevator!
Despite tremendous government’s support, some key parts remain unfunded. Specifically, five exam rooms need equipment; and, the NEW, large Community Activity Space is bare.
About the new Community Activity Space: The Space will host a range of physical activity programs and events for people of all ages and abilities. It will be equipped with a floor ideal for exercise and dance, mirrors, dance bars, a wide range of fitness equipment like mats, balls, weights, bands, skipping ropes and hula hoops. We also plan a room with fitness machines – so that when your doctor recommends more activity for better health, you can “fill that prescription”!
Our Developing Story: When developers bought the 60-year-old plaza we were in, we fought hard to stay here and stay open. The Stonegate Community Health Centre has served this south Etobicoke community for almost 30 years and it has never been more important. The province, the city, the community, and the developers listened and agreed, and for the past three years we have been serving the health and wellness needs of the community while perched on the edge of a construction site.
So, as we sprint to its completion, please donate to the new Stonegate Community Health Centre and help us fulfil our vision and promise of a more active, healthy, vibrant community.
