Algoma Steel contributes to Residential Withdrawal Management Facility at Sault hospital

Algoma Steel contributes to Residential Withdrawal Management Facility at Sault hospital

SAULT STE. MARIE, ONT. — Algoma Steel Group Inc. is donating $1 million to the Sault Area Hospital Foundation (SAHF) for the new Residential Withdrawal Management Facility.

Construction and retrofitting of the property at 145 Old Garden River Rd. began in May and will provide 20 residential withdrawal management beds and safe beds in a completely renovated space.

The funds from Algoma, which will supplement the funding provided by the Ministry of Health earlier this year, is focused on finishing exterior areas, creating outdoor courtyard spaces for clients, providing outdoor furniture and fixtures and completing an accessible, covered staff entrance.

The courtyards in particular will provide a culturally inclusive space that is reflective of surrounding geographies; a spot where families can visit with residents; a venue for group therapy and a possible therapeutic gardening program in the summer months; and a safe and secure place for clients to step outside, all year round, states the release.

The gift marks a milestone for Algoma as its total lifetime giving to the SAHF has now surpassed $5 million.

“Our team at Algoma is proud to support the Sault Area Hospital in their construction of a Residential Withdrawal Management Facility.

“This new facility will make a difference in the lives of many residents in our community,” said Michael Garcia, president and CEO of Algoma, in a statement.

“Our local health care teams do incredible work every day to positively impact the lives of the communities they serve, a cause we care passionately about given the depth of our involvement in the community and the breadth of our workers, retirees and their families. Our shared goal is to build a stronger, healthier community in partnership with those that can help meet that goal.”
