History and Funding
Eastholme opened in November 1967 with 74 beds and was renovated in 1987 with the addition of a third floor. In March 2001 a new addition for 30 new long-term care beds was completed and an additional 24 new beds were added in November 2004 to bring the total number of long-term care beds to128. As well, the original 74 beds were redeveloped to the new design standards from 2002 to 2004. Eastholme is now a Category “A” home meeting the new design standards of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
