Maps and directions

The East Coast Forensic Hospital (ECFH) works in partnership with the Departments of Health and Justice.  This is the first time in Canada that both a hospital and correctional facility are co-located to make the most efficient use of shared resources and services. 

The ECFH is unique within NSHA because the people it serves come strictly from the judicial system with the exception of the Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit. There are two rehabilitation units and a mentally ill offender unit where court ordered assessments are performed and treatment is provided to offenders diagnosed with mental illness.

Parking is free.
