COVID-19: Changes to our hospitals

Flowers

Please note: Flowers cannot be dropped off at our hospitals during this time. For a list of approved items that may be dropped off at the Visitor Screening Centres at each of the sites, please see our visiting guidelines.

Connections between patients & families (free WiFi, TV, letters)

During times like these, we know the importance of sending wishes to patients.  Volunteer Association staff will now deliver envelopes containing e-mail messages received from patients’ family members to team/nursing stations. Patients’ families can email messages using this form.

Free public WiFi access is now available by accessing “HHS Free Wifi.” This network is an attempt to help keep patients connected to loved ones during our no visitor phase. However, bandwidth on the network is limited, so things like streaming may not work smoothly. We encourage patients and families to connect with their loved ones by telephone or by video conferencing, such as FaceTime.
