Complex Continuing Care

Complex Continuing Care (CCC) is for patients with chronic, complex, and multiple non-urgent medical needs who need to stay in the hospital for specialized services and resources.

The CCC unit at our Centenary hospital is meant to be a temporary care setting to support patients in improving their abilities and functioning. It is a next step in patients’ recovery journey, on their way to their destination of home or community care. The goals for patients are to optimize quality of life, learn to manage their condition, and transition safely from the hospital to home or a community care facility.


  • Comprehensive geriatric assessment and treatment for elderly patients recovering from a major illness or injury
  • Complex care for patients with chronic conditions or multi-system disease, such as diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, and stroke
  • Short-term inpatient rehabilitation for patients who will be returning home or community setting following an acute care stay at the hospital

CCC Team

Our teams includes highly specialized nurses, physicians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, physical and occupational therapy assistants, social workers, speech and language pathologists, dietitians, pharmacists and recreational therapists. They are committed to patient-centered, senior-friendly care that actively involves patients and their families.
