An Insider's Guide to Waterloo Region

Interesting places on and off the beaten track

Freeport Hospital

Grand River Hospital, Freeport Health Centre

This is the view I see when I am at work. In the winter, the sun reflects off the windows and makes patterns on the snow-covered courtyard. This week most of the snow melted. Freeport Health Centre, built on the banks of the Grand River, has a very interesting history. Pioneer Terrace opened as a TB Sanatorium in the 1920s and a new addition including Union Terrace (pictured above) and Grand River Terrace opened in 1989. Grand River Hospital is the region’s 7th largest employer with about 2200 employees.

  1. Home Sweet Home – probably feels like as you surely spend more time there then your own home. I have ever driven up to the hospital. It certainly does have some nice views. That is fantastic that it employees 2200 people. Great shot!

    • Some days I use up all the energy I have inside those walls. But it is a lovely setting and very close to a nice trail along the river.
