Children admitted to the complex continuing care (CCC) unit have complex medical, physical and developmental challenges that require frequent and ongoing specialized assessment, monitoring and intervention. While in hospital, clients have access to a dedicated team of doctors, nurses, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, child and youth workers, social workers, therapeutic recreation specialists and other team members.
The rooms are comfortable open spaces with nursing staff on hand to monitor progress. At the end of the unit there is a lounge and dining room with kitchen that clients and families can use to prepare food, dine or relax. Clients may be admitted to the CCC unit for extended periods, however where possible, the goal is to facilitate discharge to their families and the community. To access inpatient programs and services at Holland Bloorview, a doctor's referral is required.
