The GDECC is born from the merger, in 1999, of two institutions implemented for over a century in the East End of Montreal. The Grace Dart Hospital, located at 6085 Sherbrooke St. East, was founded in 1907 by Henry J. Dart and named in honour of his daughter Grace, who died from tuberculosis in 1898. For over 60 years, the hospital was a sanatorium. We now call it the Grace Dart Pavilion installation, and it counts 101 beds.
The second installation, known today as the Extended Care Site, was called, at the time of its foundation in 1863, Montreal Protestant House of Industry and Refuge. This refuge was settled on the grounds of the Dubois farm, bequeathed by Thomas Molson. The building, located at 5155 Sainte-Catherine Street East, was inaugurated in 1885 to welcome poor elderly of Protestant denomination. It counts today 256 beds.
The GDECC has long served primarily the Anglophone clientele of Montreal. The recent evolution has brought the Centre to service a clientele from the West Island of Montreal. Bilingualism is thus an inherent quality to service delivery, whereas the cultural diversity colors the daily atmosphere of the GDECC.
