with HIV/AIDS when it opened in 1988. It is a specialty HIV/AIDS care
facility that also offers community programming, including home care
and outreach programs.

"The Casey House project will improve care and support for people living
with HIV/AIDS in the Greater Toronto Area. Our government has long been
committed to ensuring that Ontarians and their families have access to
high quality health care close to home - a key pillar of our Action
Plan for Health Care."

"This redevelopment will enable Casey House to more than double our
capacity to provide compassionate health care for some of Toronto's
most frail and vulnerable people living with HIV/AIDS. Specifically it
will allow us to expand our continuum of care, including a Day Health
Program, which will serve as a new model of care for people living with
complex chronic diseases."
