Today, Partners Community Health, a new, not-for-profit organization focused on bringing health care services together around the needs of people living in Mississauga and West Toronto, has entered into an agreement with Sienna Senior Living to operate the Camilla Care Community (Camilla) long-term care home in Mississauga.
This transaction is a three-way agreement between Sienna Senior Living (Sienna), Partners Community Health (PCH) and Trillium Health Partners (THP). The agreement, subject to government approval, includes the sale of Camilla in its entirety, including the property and the 236 long-term care (LTC) bed licenses. In this agreement, THP will acquire the building and land that Camilla is currently situated on, and PCH will acquire the bed licenses and operations of the LTC home. For Sienna, PCH and THP the top priority is the continuity of care for Camilla residents, families and staff; and the agreement is designed with this priority at the center.
The acquisition of Camilla will help keep much needed LTC services in Mississauga, a community that has 20 per cent fewer LTC beds per capita than the provincial average. As an older C-class home, Camilla needs to be redeveloped. PCH will open 632 new LTC beds upon the completion of an ongoing build, with plans for future expansion, and Camilla services will be included in those plans. THP is one of the largest community-based hospital systems in Canada and serves the growing and diverse populations of Mississauga, West Toronto and surrounding communities. THP will experience more demand for services than any other Ontario hospital in the next 20 years, and the Camilla property will mean greater opportunity for health campus development on the Mississauga Hospital site. Sienna, PCH, and THP will work collaboratively during a period of transition, with the sale process targeted to conclude on March 31, 2022.
PCH was formed in response to the growing health care needs in this community, and to deliver services that give people access to the care they need, when they need it, right in their own community. The history, experience and expertise of Sienna and Camilla staff is a valuable asset as PCH enters into longterm care. PCH brings strong leadership, an informed and knowledgeable board, and a vision to create an interconnected system of care, with partnerships across the community. PCH is committed to providing high quality care to Camilla residents, and looks forward to discussing, shaping and building a future of long-term care with the staff, residents and families of Camilla.
“Partners Community Health was formed to respond to the gaps in community care, and provide care that is designed around the needs of the people who will use it. This partnership will allow us to further build our relationship with the community and the residents of Camilla Community Care and continue to provide them with the highest quality of care.” – Jeff Lozon, Board of Directors, Partners Community Health
“Sienna is committed to working with fellow operators, health sector partners, governments, and communities to strengthen and grow long-term care capacity in Ontario. As part of this work, the sector needs to be collaborative and creative, always aware that it is a great privilege and tremendous responsibility to care for Canada’s Seniors. The collaboration between Camilla, Partners Community Health, and Trillium Health Partners exemplifies this mission to create quality care and system integration.” – Nitin Jain, President and CEO, Sienna Senior Living
“We are looking forward to continuing to work with Sienna Senior Living over the coming months to ensure a transparent and seamless transition for staff, families and residents. The staff of Camilla are our most valuable resource, as they bring a high-level of expertise in long-term care and we look forward to working with them as we shape a new future. Maintaining a continuity of care for residents and families is of vital importance, and we are committed to ensuring the highest standard of quality, safety and care going forward.” – Tess Romain, President, Partners Community Health
