Rouge Valley Centenary, also known by its former name Centenary Hospital, is a hospital in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is part of the Scarborough and Rouge Hospital and one of three hospitals in the suburb of Scarborough.

History[edit]

The hospital opened on July 1, 1967 as Scarborough Centenary Hospital and was the second hospital for the growing Township of Scarborough.[1] Located not far from Scarborough General Hospital, the process of building Centenary's started in 1963, not longer after Scarborough General. Expansions in 1986 and 1991 helped the hospital deal with the growing east end of Scarborough.[2]

Now serving east Toronto, the hospital merged with Ajax and Pickering General Hospital in 1998 to create the Rouge Valley Health System.

The Rouge Valley Health System was dissolved December 1, 2016 by an executive order from the Ontario Minister of Health. The Ajax and Pickering site was absorbed into the Lakeridge Health system, while the Centenary site merged with the Scarborough Hospital creating the Scarborough and Rouge Hospital. The newly form hospital has three sites. The Birchmount site, The General site, and the Centenary site.

Services[edit]

The hospital has a capacity of 307 beds, and is currently home to the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine for the Rouge Valley system.

The Emergency Department accommodates 54,000 visits a year and hospital services include (Angioplasty procedures, hip/knee replacement services, cardiac catheterizations, outpatient services, etc.)
