The state-of-the-art St. Catharines Hospital opened in March 2013 and has been the catalyst for a number of significant improvements to patient care. The opening of the St. Catharines Hospital meant Niagara residents wouldn’t have to travel out of region for a number of treatments. New and enhanced regional programs were introduced, changing how care was delivered. Many remarkable successes have taken place since the St. Catharines Hospital opened.
In addition, due to the size of the Intensive Care Unit, we were able to create a new Critical Care Response Team, which represents a major innovation in patient safety. A dedicated critical care nurse, physician, and other healthcare providers as required take their critical care expertise outside of the ICU and to the patient’s bedside (or wherever it is needed) 24/7. Early identification of a failing patient allows the team to either stabilize the patient on the ward or facilitate his/her early admission to the ICU. We are currently in the process of planning to expand this model to our Greater Niagara General and Welland sites.
