Three-site model engagement well received in Niagara Falls

Three-site model engagement well received in Niagara Falls

We want to extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in our recent three-site hospital system community engagement session in Niagara Falls. Your active involvement and thoughtful questions will be instrumental in shaping the future of healthcare in the Niagara region.

We are fortunate in Niagara to be in the process of building a brand-new hospital in Niagara Falls just 10 years after the opening of our St. Catharines Hospital. Together, with our three-cornerstone sites, Niagara Health and our partners will create a more modern and coordinated system of care that is centred on patients and caregivers.

During the engagement session, community members had the opportunity to learn about the many ways the new South Niagara Hospital will transform the way we deliver hospital care in the region.

There are many exciting features that have been incorporated into the hospital design, such as smart beds, digital wayfinding, green roofs and an Indigenous healing space and garden, making it a state-of-the-art facility that will not only improve the patient care experience, but will also benefit Niagara Health staff, physicians and all hospital users. 

Some of the questions raised focused on Niagara Health’s efforts to attract and retain healthcare professionals to the region. Niagara Health executives emphasized that quality healthcare is about more than just physical buildings, it’s about access to modern equipment and highly trained staff. Staff want to work in leading, modern hospital facilities and the South Niagara Hospital will be a big recruiting tool to attract top talent to Niagara.

As we move forward with the planning and development of our three-site model, we are committed to keeping the community engaged and informed. We will continue to seek input, feedback and ensure transparency throughout our journey.

Learn more about our three-site hospital model.
