The health and well-being of our patients, their families and our staff is our top priority.

Spectrum Health Care is following the guidance of Public Health Ontario as it relates to the management of COVID-19. Our Senior Management team members participate in regular meetings with the Ministry of Health and Home Care Ontario to stay up-to-date with emerging information about the virus.

As a community health care provider Spectrum Health Care is continuing to provide essential health care services to our patients.

Spectrum Health Care is working diligently to prevent the spread of COVID-19 by continuing to use rigorous infection control practices and by screening all patients and their families using the screening tool from Public Health Ontario prior to home visits, clinic visits or patient transfers.

Spectrum Health Care is screening all employees returning to work after leave or vacation and communicating with them regularly about health guidance and any updates from the Ministry of Health.

Any staff or patients with symptoms or history of recent travel are being asked to self-isolate to protect themselves and those around them.

We have created a response plan and are using Public Health Ontario guidance to support our preparedness plans. Our COVID-19 preparedness plan includes operations, HR and communications planning.

We remain committed to providing high quality care and service to our patients.
