PSA: Important information for some surgical patients at NBRHC

Posted on

Dr. Aaron Van Vliet is no longer a practicing physician at the North Bay Regional Health Centre. With this change, comes the need to reschedule some orthopedic patients.

We understand the disruption these changes are having on our patients and their families, and also appreciate the frustration many are feeling.

Please note that patients with referrals that were sent directly to Dr. Van Vliet’s office who have not yet been contacted for an appointment at the North East Joint Assessment Centre (NEJAC) should contact their primary care provider for a new referral.

All other patients will be contacted as follows:

Patients scheduled for surgeries: the Hospital will be contacting these patients to offer a choice of alternate surgeons to perform the surgery;

NEJAC patients: patients already assessed by NEJAC will be contacted by NEJAC staff and offered a choice of alternate surgeons to perform the surgery.

Thank you for your support and patience as we work as quickly as we can to contact all those impacted. Should you require additional information, please contact the office of the Chief Nursing Executive and Vice President, Clinical, Joanne Laplante.
