The President of Malta Visits Runnymede Healthcare Centre

Description: While on her visit to Canada, Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, the President of Malta, together with the Ambassador of Malta, Pierre Clive Agius, and the Consul General of Malta, Hanan El Khatib, made a special appearance at Runnymede Healthcare Centre (RHC) on May 1. President Coleiro Preca met with Runnymede’s President & Chief Executive Officer, Connie Dejak, and took a tour of the facilities and visited with some of the hospital’s Maltese patients and their families. RHC is located within the 'Little Malta' area of the western Junction neighbourhood, and the Centre is home to many of Maltese heritage. After the tour, everyone assembled in the Gathering Room, and Connie Dejak welcomed her esteemed guests and announced that a new 200-bed long-term care home will be built adjacent to the existing hospital. The new LTC home will be provincially funded and allow patients to receive care closer to home, including the local Maltese population. The cultural group does not currently have an LTC facility or dedicated program anywhere in Ontario. President Coleiro Preca had many kind words to say about RHC and Canada in general, praising the country for its cultural diversity and outstanding healthcare.
