During Your Stay

Supporting patient transfers across regions within Ontario

Our highest priority is the safety and well-being of patients and front-line health care teams. As the rate of positivity for COVID-19 remains high across the province, hospitals are facing significant pressures.

Currently, we are working as a system with our hospital partners to transfer patients to surrounding hospitals that are able to accommodate a similar level of care in a timely manner. Every effort is being made to keep patients as close to home as possible.

By treating hospital capacity as a single system we can collectively ensure equal access for patients and support the stabilization of hospitals in Ontario.

If you have any questions during your stay, ask a member of your care team. If they don’t know the answer, they will connect you with someone who can help.
