Inter-Regional ICU Patient Transfers going out of HNHBB

Our region’s hospitals are experiencing immense pressures due to critical staffing shortages, and high demand for care. Extraordinary measures are needed to manage these pressures to maintain access to core service and ensure that patients have access to critical care services. This includes, when appropriate, the transfer of critical patients outside of our region as per provincial procedures. The cumulative number of patient transfers outside of the region is available on St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton’s COVID-19 website.
