Some of the new homes will be on existing property and others, like West End Villa, currently on Elmira Drive, will move to new locations. Extendicare currently operates about 700 beds In Ottawa. At the end of the rebuilding process, the for-profit chain will operate over 1,000 Ottawa beds, Guerriere said. Advertisement Article content Extendicare came under fire after a COVID-19 outbreak In West End Villa started in August 2020 and claimed the lives of 19 residents by mid-October. The province ordered The Ottawa Hospital to temporarily take over management of the home along with Laurier Manor, which was then also in the midst of an outbreak. For-profit LTC operators were under scrutiny last year as Ontario’s long-term care commission probed the reasons around the LTC deaths during the pandemic. The commission’s report, released in April, noted that Ontario would need at least 96,000 more LTC beds by 2041 — and that will require significant capital. The private sector has the capital needed to build new LTC beds, but there is no reason that the accommodation and care of residents have to be handled by the same entity, the commission’s report said.

On Thursday, the government introduced new legislation that would would beef up enforcement and make it easier for the province to take over homes and to increase direct care for residents to an average minimum of four hours by March 31, 2025. The province has also pledged more money for training and hiring staff and inspectors. “What we said in the legislation I introduced (Thursday) is that we expect the mission of long-term care homes to be quality of care and quality of life,” said Phillips, who was in Stittsville for the ground-breaking. Advertisement Article content “How it gets structured, we’re very open to what kind of partners want to come forward. We’re going to work with the best operators.” There are 220 LTC projects underway in Ontario, including many with not-for-profit proponents, Phillips said. Ann Cioppa, a resident at West End Villa since 2017, had COVID-19 last year, but doesn’t remember much about the experience. She currently shares a room and is looking forward to having more space in the new home. All of Extendicare’s current beds were built under 1972 standards. In the current West End Villa, as many as four people share a room. The new Stittsville home will have just over 600 square feet for every resident, more than double the current space. Every resident will also have their own room. “The floor space is simply not enough,” Cioppa said. “People have more stuff now than they did 20 years ago.” Share this article in your social network Share this Story: Ground broken for Stittsville LTC home to replace West End Villa
