It is my unfortunate duty to report that a patient being treated at Niagara Health for COVID-19 passed away earlier today. On behalf of the hospital, I would like to extend our sincere condolences to the patient’s family and loved ones at this extremely sad time. We all mourn this loss as a community, and this passing reinforces Niagara Health’s commitment to continue providing safe, high-quality and compassionate care.
Niagara Health has been planning for the arrival of COVID-19 in our community for months. We have a comprehensive plan in place to support the safety, health and well-being of our patients. We will continue to work with our experts and our regional, provincial and federal healthcare partners to make evidence-based decisions to ensure the hospital remains as safe as possible over the course of this pandemic.
