The Rotary Club of Toronto has recently funded a major project by providing $350,000 to develop an Infirmary at Seaton House shelter for homeless men in downtown Toronto. This project is a unique concept which would become a national model for delivering the best healthcare to some of society's most vulnerable people. A key feature is that Seaton House has become a formal academic training site for medical students, medical residents, nurses and social workers thereby equipping future healthcare providers with the special knowledge required to treat the homeless. Opened in September 2002, The Rotary Club of Toronto Infirmary at Seaton House provides health services for Seaton House clients who required increased medical attention due to acute of chronic illness. The infolrmary is an innovative partnership between three institutions: The Rotary Club of Toronto, St. Michael's Hospital and The University of Toronto.
