March is National Nutrition Month! At Niagara Health, our Clinical Nutrition team supports more than 25,000 patients each year.
We support the efforts of Six Nations of the Grand River to improve Indigenous people’s access to healthcare. We understand Heather Winterstein’s family is a part of the Six Nations community, and we share our condolences to the family and community.
Niagara residents who need urgent care but don’t have access to a primary care provider can now book an appointment online to see a Niagara Health provider from the comfort of their home.
Starting Monday, March 14, we are increasing our visitor guidelines to welcome two visitors at the bedside for inpatient units, including Labour and Delivery and NICU. At this time, there is no change for outpatient, Emergency Department (ED) and Urgent Care Centres (UCC) where patients can continue to bring one person to support them.
A new clinic opening today at the St. Catharines Site will increase access to minor gynecology services that are minimally invasive and can be safely provided to female patients who do not require general anesthesia or a hospital admission.
Elisabeth Zimmermann is a member of the Board of Directors at Niagara Health and Executive Director of the YWCA Niagara Region. She is an inspiring and powerful advocate for women in Niagara. This International Women’s Day, she reflects on what drives her passion to improve the lives of women.
Patients may have one visitor at their bedside from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Visitors, Support Persons and Essential Care Partners play an integral role in the care and well-being of our patients. With the reduction of COVID cases in the hospital and in the community, we are able to begin gradually opening up visitor restrictions.
To build healthy communities, we must have a strong health system – one that enables each component (of the health system in Niagara) to function to its fullest capacity, one that is organized to give people access to quality care by the right health professionals, in the right place, at the right time.
