As the home of North York General Hospital’s child and adolescent outpatient mental health programs, the 12,000 square foot site reimagines how we can support people in overcoming critical health challenges including depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.
The Phillips House once lay vacant at 10 Buchan Court, behind the hospital’s Seniors’ Health Centre. Thanks to the generosity of our community in partnership with the North York General Foundation and hospital, the building and landscape have been transformed into a beautiful, serene space to promote healing and well-being. A priority of the redesign was to create a warm, home-like setting to help alleviate some of the stress and stigma patients face. This building provides a unique setting for ambulatory and transitional mental health services for children, adolescents and their families.
The site is also home to Maddie’s Healing Garden, a therapeutic healing garden supported through a lead gift from The Maddie Project, which was established in the memory of Nicole’s daughter Madeline Grace German Coulter, in recognition of the care she received at North York General. Read more.
From the very beginning, supporters realized the real opportunity to dramatically alter the experience of patients with mental health conditions. Thanks to our community's support, we have made this dream a reality.
