Effective May 3 the Health Centre has temporarily delayed elective surgeries and procedures.
This action is being taken to preserve health system capacity and help to ensure Ontario’s health care system can continue to meet the needs of critically ill patients and is in line with Directive #2.
NBRHC will continue to perform emergency and urgent surgeries and procedures, such as trauma and cancer.
How will I know if my surgery is being postponed?
Only those patients whose appointments are cancelled will be notified. If you do not receive a call, your surgery/appointment will proceed and closer to the date, you will receive instructions to prepare and what to do upon arrival.
Can I still access Diagnostic Imaging?
Patients will continue to have access to health services such as diagnostic services directly related to the provision of urgent or emergent surgeries and procedures.
What if I have concerns about my health or symptoms?
Our emergency department remains open. In an emergency, please don’t hesitate or delay receiving care. Our Health Centre is prepared to safely provide care to all our patients.
