HRH operates 722 acute inpatient beds with 3,400 staff, approximately 700 physicians, and over 1,000 volunteers. HRH currently includes the Wilson site, a 656-bed full service acute care facility that opened in 2015, and the Finch and Church sites, known as the "Reactivation Centres” (RCC). The RCCs represent a unique partnership among multiple hospitals in the GTA, with a focus on high quality patient recovery. A 356-bed Long-Term care facility “Humber Meadows” is currently under construction at the Finch Avenue site.

HRH also recently received the Studer Group Award for Excellence in Canadian Patient Care and the Canadian Council of Health Service Executives Patient Safety Award.
