MISSISSAUGA, On, March 29 – Today, Partners Community Health (PCH) announced the name of the two state-of-the-art, 632 bed long-term care (LTC) homes, being built at 2180 Speakman Drive in Mississauga as Wellbrook Place.
The long-term care homes, with plans to be part of a larger community hub for seniors, are to be built by Trillium Health Partners as part of the Ontario Government’s Accelerated Build Pilot Program, which aims to deliver new long-term care homes years sooner than traditional development projects through the use of hospital-owned land, rapid procurement and modular construction.
The process of naming these homes began in 2021 and represents an important milestone for the PCH team. In keeping with PCH’s commitment to partnership and deep community collaboration, the naming process involved several rounds of public consultation that included PCH residents, their families, staff, partner organizations, community members and other stakeholders. Diversity groups, including service providers in the region, were also consulted to ensure the new name is reflective of the organization’s values and the many populations it serves.
“The word ‘Well’ is synonymous with feeling good, living better and healthy outcomes–all of which are sentiments the new homes will work to promote and support people to achieve,” says Tess Romain, President, Partners Community Health. “Wellbrook Place, demonstrates that wellness is connected to a sense of environment and place, embodying PCH’s holistic approach to caring for the physical, social and spiritual wellbeing of residents and visitors. We’re proud of this approach, which is also captured in our innovative Philosophy of Care.”
“I am pleased to congratulate the PCH team on this significant milestone for Mississauga,” says Rudy Cuzzetto, MPP for Mississauga–Lakeshore. “Our government is committed to improving the health and well-being of seniors across Ontario, and a key part of that is the most ambitious long-term care building program in Canadian history. The opening of Wellbrook Place later this year will give 632 new residents a modern, safe, and comfortable place in our community to call home, near their family and friends.”
This announcement also coincides with the introduction of PCH’s newly refreshed visual identity.
PCH hosted a public competition to help finalize the brand development process, and decide on a new logo for the organization. Over 100 participants took part in this contest and helped define the look and feel of PCH.
“We’re thrilled that we had such high levels of engagement from our community in helping to shape the culture and image of PCH,” said Tess. “We look forward to creating many more opportunities for the public to have their voices heard in shaping the future of our organization.”
The chosen logo depicts a ‘brook’ or a ‘path’ that runs through the bottom of the ‘H’, portraying a sense of place, and connecting the mark to the natural surroundings of where PCH and Wellbrook Place are designed to be part of the greater community.
As next steps, the PCH team will be working to update our brand collateral. The new logo will be rolled out next week.
