From Past to Present

Deer Lodge Centre has a long and proud history of caring. Our motto, Making lives better, reflects this history — from 1916, when a military convalescent hospital was established for returning WWI soldiers, to today, when veterans continue to be treated alongside a large population of patients and residents from the broader community.

Deer Lodge Centre transferred from a Veterans Affairs Canada hospital to a provincial facility in 1983. One hundred fifty-five personal care beds are maintained exclusively for veterans under the Federal/Provincial agreement. Since changing from an acute general hospital to a facility caring for adult patients with complex needs, Deer Lodge Centre has become the largest rehabilitation and long-term care facility in Manitoba, with a bed capacity of 487.

In 2002, the Centre became an operating division of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.
