I am reaching out today to provide an update on how Joseph Brant Hospital and the Foundation are responding to the current novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We remain steadfast in our commitment to the health and safety of our staff, donors and partners and are closely following the advice of public health authorities.
Joseph Brant Hospital enacted an Emergency Operations Centre which meets daily to review our response and make adjustments as required in our rapidly changing environment. In addition, Joseph Brant Hospital has opened a COVID-19 Assessment & Testing Clinic. Clinic services are offered only through referral from Public Health.
The Hospital leadership is working closely with regional and provincial health partners to monitor the situation, assess ongoing risk and keep our community informed.
In an effort to keep our physicians, staff and patients safe, all staff and visitors coming to our hospital are now being actively screened for symptoms at dedicated entrances. Patients and visitors are asked to enter through the Main Entrance on Lakeshore Road.
For more information about the Hospital’s response, please visit the Joseph Brant Hospital COVID-19 website.
