Update on Mindemoya Emergency Department

Mindemoya, ON  -

The renovation and expansion of the Mindemoya Emergency Department is moving into Phase II this week as progress continues. The Mindemoya site, including the Emergency Department, remains open for patients and families as usual.

Phase II construction is expected to be completed in a few months. It will include a new registration and triage area as well as more private patient areas. “It is amazing to see the vision coming together,” said Paula Fields, President and CEO of MHC. “I know staff are excited to welcome patients into the newly expanded space. Thank you so much to the community for your continued support and to everyone who came together financially to make this happen. We are going to be able to welcome everyone soon to our top notch, state of the art facility that will better serve our patients and our medical staff for future generations.”

While improvements continue, the Hospital wants to thank everyone for their patience and understanding through the inconvenience. Given the renovations and reduced space in the short term, people are being asked to limit the number of people who attend with them or visit.
