As a second state of emergency has been declared for the Province of Ontario, Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare (MAHC) has restricted general visitation to both hospitals in line with the stay-at-home order commencing Thursday, January 14, 2021.
No visitors are permitted with a few exceptions on a case-by-case basis for compassionate reasons. Exceptions for visiting include special situations (obstetrical patients who may have one support person during labour) and compassionate circumstances (palliative, critical patients).
If you have a family member or friend currently in either of MAHC’s hospital sites, you can bring a smile to their face by using our complimentary best wishes service to get a message delivered to their bedside through a form on our website at https://www.mahc.ca/BestWishes/.
At the time of this release, outpatient clinics, appointments and elective surgery continues. This could change as we constantly evaluate the changing situation in our region and province.
