Movement Disorder Clinic

military convalescent hospital was established for returning WWI soldiers, to today, as military per- sonnel and veterans continue to be treated along- side a large population of patients and residents from the broader community. Deer Lodge Centre Foundation was established

in 1990 to raise awareness and funds for programs, services, and research at Deer Lodge Centre.

A Legacy of Caring Deer Lodge Centre transferred from a Veterans

Affairs Canada hospital to a provincial facility in 1983. Today, veterans continue to have priority access to Personal Care beds under a federal/pro- vincial agreement. Since changing from an acute general hospital to a facility caring for adult patients with complex needs, as part of the Winnipeg Health Region Deer Lodge Centre has become the largest rehabilitation and long-term care facility in Mani- toba, with a bed capacity of 418.
