DRDH Hosting Community Open House on New Long-Term Care Home Build


The Deep River & District Hospital’s (DRDH) project team has been busy over the summer hosting focus group meetings with staff, residents, and other community stakeholders, to gather feedback and help guide designs for the new 96-bed Long-Term Care Home.

The project team has made substantial progress behind the scenes and is now hosting an “Open House” to share all the exciting progress with our community.

Members of the community are invited to attend a public “Open House” event on Thursday, October 13, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Deep River Town Hall to hear all the exciting project updates and share ideas.

The “Open House” will feature a number of information stations staffed by members of the project team, including architects and DRDH team members. Information stations will highlight progress made to date, the journey ahead, fundraising goals, design renderings, future employment opportunities, and much more.

Coffee and refreshments will be available thanks to the generous support of the Deep River and District Community Foundation (DRCF). Support from the DRDCF will also allow for the creation of printed displays to showcase design renderings for the new Home.

As designs continue to evolve, this “Open House” is an opportunity to share the project evolution and hear from our community about how the new Home can best meet the needs of our residents for years to come.

The Deep River & District Hospital received approval from the Ministry of Long-Term Care for the new Home in 2019, and has since been working diligently to progress the project forward. The new Four Seasons Lodge Long-Term Care Home, estimated to open as early as 2025, will be home to 96 residents located on DRDH’s health campus. In addition, the new Home will greatly contribute to the economic prosperity of our area by providing 200 new jobs and an increase of $5M in direct wages annually. Support from the Closer to Home campaign will enable the project to be completed with newly improved design standards and for the new Home to be sustainable for generations to come.
