About SJCG

Brief Overview of St. Joseph's Care Group

St. Joseph’s Care Group (SJCG) combines tradition and innovation in responding to the unmet needs of the people of Northwestern Ontario since 1884. We are here for our clients, offering a broad range of programs and services in Addictions & Mental Health, Rehabilitative Care, and Seniors’ Health across 8 sites in the City of Thunder Bay.

With over 2,400 staff and growing, we pride ourselves on maintaining our core values of Care, Compassion, and Commitment. We are recognized as a leader in delivering safe, high-quality health care and have been Accredited with Exemplary Standing, the highest level awarded by Accreditation Canada.

Our vast service area and culturally diverse client population includes many remote and isolated communities where access to specialized health services is a challenge. To meet that challenge, we find new and innovative ways to deliver care through technology and strong partnerships, and are the Northwestern Ontario regional lead for Rehabilitative Care, Behavioural Supports and Palliative Care.

Coupling research with mobilization, our Centre for Applied Health Research (CAHR) supports internal and external staff and clinicians through expertise, project consultation and knowledge translation.

Our Behavioural Sciences Centre provides service to many companies and businesses in the region through Employee & Family Assistance Programs, the provision of confidential, high-quality counseling, as well as insurance and workplace assessment services.

  • Annual operating budget of just over $181 million (2017/2018)
