Casey House – 123 Isabella

Casey House was the first hospice in the world designed for people with AIDS.

The facility founded by June Callwood and named after her youngest son, opened on March 1, 1988, and  began a working relationship with St. Michael’s Hospital.   The original facility was housed in two properties on Isabella street, one a coach house and the other a Victorian bay and gable.  Later the foundation acquired “The Grey Lady”, a large Victorian mansion at the corner of Isabella and Jarvis Streets [please see notes on the William R. Johnston House – 571 Jarvis Street].   Casey House Foundation now has plans to build a new tower on the site of the coach house and the parking lot to its west.
