 Overview
 Description
An amazing complex... Torontos version of Whitby Psych. But if you want to check it out you better hurry, it is being demolished in September 2004

Unfortunately each wing of this complex is its own building connected to eachother only by hallways on the 1st floor. Therefore be careful when you are moving around the place. The security guards do random checks inside the building, and may even occupy an office or 2 within the building.

     History
    "The Downsview Rehabilitation Centre was one of the first treatment centres of its kind when it opened in 1932 at 77 Richmond Street in downtown Toronto. Due to expansion and the addition of new programs, the Centre was relocated to 115 Torbarrie Road in Downsview, Ontario in 1958. The Downsview Rehabilitation Centre grouped together all the disciplines needed to treat workers' injuries. Physicians, remedial gymnasts, the speciality clinics such as the hand clinic, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and the general trauma clinic, were all under one roof." - (from WSIB Website)
