Patients Being Admitted For Surgery
Due to the Ontario Chief Medical Officer of Health’s order to cease all non-urgent surgery as a result of COVID-19 we have cancelled all surgeries up to and including January 28th. Patients will be contacted by the Hospital to re-book their surgery once a re-opening date is determined.
Patients with surgical dates after Jan 28 th should monitor our website for information on when we will be allowed to re-open.

Walk-In Clinic
During our Surgical shut-down our walk-in clinic will continue to operate on a walk-in basis. Clinic hours are weekdays only from 9:00 A.M to 3:00 P.M.
All patients will be actively screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to entry to the Hospital.
Please do not come to the clinic if you are feeling unwell, have recently tested positive for COVID-19, or have come into Close Contact with COVID-19.
