Changes at Niagara Health to address need for increasing ICU capacity due to COVID-19

April 29, 2021

Niagara Health is undergoing a number of changes in Critical Care today to respond to significant healthcare system pressures in Niagara and across the province.

The number of ICU beds being filled by COVID-19 patients is at unprecedented levels and is anticipated to climb further. Although we are seeing signs of improvement in new cases in Niagara and in Ontario, we know activity in the hospital follows two to three weeks behind community COVID-19 activity and we need to be prepared for a surge in admissions at Niagara Health. In addition to our COVID-19 response, we need to ensure we have capacity to care for non-COVID-19 patients requiring critical care.
