Health Care


A great deal of the constructed works by PMA includes the creation of environments surrounding Health Care Facilities and Senior’s Residences. PMA has designed the landscape spaces for many Seniors Residences including Elgin Manor Residence in St. Thomas, Hillsdale Manor Phases 1 & 2 in Oshawa, James T. Bonham Residence in Toronto, Lambton Meadow Villa in Petrolia, and Meadowcroft Place in Toronto. Other Health Care work includes: Allendale Care Facility in Milton, a major Alzheimers and Chronic Care Facility for Southern Ontario; Brampton Civic Hospital – William Osler Health Care Centre (WOHC); and Stone Church Family Health Centre. At WOHC, PMA was responsible for the landscape and environmental design surrounding the hospital, streetscape, storm water management plantings, and specialty courtyard spaces. These specialty courtyards included spaces for the public & staff, physical & occupational therapy courtyards, ambulatory care and rehabilitation courtyards, dementia/mental health courtyards, and respite care gardens.


While a specific, specialized user can be defined in such facilities, our design approach caters to all users – the infirmed, the residents, the staff and visitors all use the same spaces. Therapy is not necessarily enjoyment – but the enjoyment and relaxation experienced in these outdoor spaces is therapeutic.
