The state-of-the-art St. Catharines Site, which opened in March 2013, has been the catalyst for a number of significant improvements to patient care. Many remarkable successes have taken place since the St. Catharines Site opened five years ago. Thousands of cancer, heart and mental health patients who would have had to travel to Hamilton or beyond can now access vital healthcare services right here in Niagara. Find out how we celebrated the site's fifth birthday.
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.
