The Al Hogg and Weatherby Pavilions provide 24-hour professional nursing services to people who are no longer able to stay at home safely. They are part of the residential care service located at Peace Arch Hospital.
Peace Arch Hospital Geriatrics Services work collaboratively with elderly clients, their families and other health care providers in our community and region to promote optimal physical, mental and social well-being for our residents.
Our philosophy is centered around two major beliefs; first that each person is an individual of inherent worth and dignity with unique needs, expectations, hopes and dreams and second, that those needs are best met in a thoughtful, collaborative and professional way.
