Niagara Health is currently moving through Phase 2 of our recovery planning
As Niagara Health (NH) moves through Phase 2 of our recovery planning, c linical activity is operating between 25-35% of normal volumes. The number of appointments will increase as the weeks and months progress; however, safety will continue to be an important focus as appointments increase.

Our No Visitors Policy remains in effect for the time being. For physical distancing, only patients and essential visitors are permitted at our hospitals. If you need to bring someone to assist you, please let your care team know ahead of time as all visitors need to be approved in advance. Anyone accompanying you must also pass hospital screening. However, new policies and procedures regarding visitors are in development as part of our recovery planning.

We’re thankful for the community’s patience during this time and we ask for your continued understanding as we work as quickly and safely as we can to re-introduce services. We will continue to keep the community updated on our planning and progress.
Important Reminders for patients coming to NH:
Be prepared to be screened before entering the hospital. An NH team member will ask you questions as part of this process.
Patients and approved visitors are asked to bring their own masks to wear at all times while at NH.
Follow signage and other directional information while at the hospital.
Maintain a safe physical distance of six-feet (2 metres) from others while at NH sites.
Practice meticulous hand hygiene upon entry and at appropriate times while in the hospital.
