Generous gift from Fred A. Litwin & family enhances Toronto Rehab’s outpatient services

Toronto Rehab’s Outpatient Clinic on University Avenue was today renamed the Fred A. Litwin Outpatient Centre in recognition of Fred A. Litwin’s multi-million dollar investment.  The Centre will provide a full complement of care to Toronto Rehab’s Ontario-wide outpatient services to help individuals regain their strength and independence, and recapture their potential.

Fred A. Litwin is the Chief Executive Officer and President of Forum Financial Corporation, a private equity firm that specializes in providing financial, strategic and operational expertise to its investments in healthcare, real estate and financial industries. Mr. Litwin has for many years served as a Board Member of a number of Charitable Foundations and publically listed entities.

“It is an absolute pleasure to play a role in shaping the future of rehabilitation in this province, country and around the world,” says Litwin. “Toronto Rehab is helping to redefine disability and accessibility through innovation. Their work is transforming rehabilitation to enrich the lives of countless individuals now and in the future.

In 2013 construction was completed on the transformation of Toronto Rehab’s 13-storey University Centre with enhanced patient suites and therapy space. An efficient outpatient facility has been established to bring together services such as a musculoskeletal (MSK) program, stroke and brain injury service, with other outpatient care in one centralized location. University Centre is now a one-stop destination for patients and families, housing a number of essential services under one roof.
