Transitional Care


Through transitional care, Bruyère provides a bridge for patients to make their way back to the community safely, whether that is returning to their home or transitioning to long-term care or convalescent care.

Bruyère has 141 transitional care beds across two locations in Ottawa:


  • 21 transitional beds at Élisabeth Bruyère
  • 120 transitional beds at Greystone Village Retirement Home

Patients who transfer to Bruyère for transitional care do so for a short period. An average length of stay in transitional care is 60 days.
