Cornwall Hospital Mental Health & Addictions Centre

Cornwall, Ontario

This project brings together existing CCH outpatient mental services, Withdrawal Management services and Addiction Services of Eastern Ontario under a “co-location” model by constructing a new building on CCH’s McConnell site. The former Hotel Dieu convent building on the site was demolished in order to accommodate the new CCH building and parking requirements.

The co-location in this new building combines services that were previously offered at three different sites in Cornwall and will reduce wait times while providing patients in Eastern Ontario – Child and Youth Mental Health Services, Community Withdrawal Management Services, Assertive Community Treatment: (ACT), Adult Counselling Treatment, Mental Health, Crisis Team/Peer Support, Geriatric Mental Health Services, and Addiction Services.

Sustainability features include:

  • Public Transit incentives/access
  • Low flow plumbing and automated lighting fixtures
  • Central Courtyard with passive solar design to maximize visual comfort & reduce energy use
  • Integrated Design Process – a holistic approach to high performance building design and construction. Project team shared a vision of sustainability, and worked collaboratively to implement sustainability goals. This process enabled the team to optimize systems, reduce operating and maintenance
