As the Covid 19 situation continues to evolve globally and here at home, the Centre Grey Health Services Foundation is committed to keeping you and your family safe and informed. We believe that the health and well-being of every individual person is the priority during these difficult times. In view of this, we have closed our office to ensure that the hospital environment is cleared for essential staff only. However, we continue to work off-site and are available through our regular phone and e-mail addresses.
We would also like to take this opportunity to THANK OUR FAMILY OF DONORS!
The donations you have made over the years have made it possible for us to have a fully functional hospital NOW when we need it most!
As of today, our hospital staff have all of the necessary equipment, technology and infection control standards needed to weather this storm and we thank YOU for that!
Physicians and staff at the Markdale Hospital are working diligently to flatten the curve of the Covid-19 pandemic by:
- limiting the points of entry/exit of the hospital
- screening all individuals upon entry
- implementing a no-visitor policy (exceptions made on compassionate grounds)
- ceasing all volunteer activity
Also, a Covid 19 Assessment Centre has been set up at the Owen Sound Regional Hospital.
Additional tools available to you are
- the province’s on-line self-assessment tool ontario.ca/page/2019-novel-coronavirus
- Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000
AS WELL AS
- The Covid-19 Assessment Centre which has been set up at the Owen Sound Regional Hospital
Your health and safety is our priority. We encourage all of you to follow the protocols that support your health and well-being including self-isolation and social distancing. For further information and updates, please visit https://www.gbhs.on.ca/covid-19/
What more can you do? Our healthcare system must have the funds available to control this pandemic. Making a donation to the Covid-19 Relief Fund today will ensure our team at The Markdale Hospital has the essential lifesaving equipment, technology and supplies to provide patients with the best possible care as we weather this storm.
It has never been more important that we come together as a community to ensure that we are doing all we can.
If you wish to donate to the COVID-19 Fund you can do so online.
We Thank You for your support.
Please; STAY SAFE
Centre Grey Health Services Foundation Board and Staff
