Thanks to a Volunteer Association/Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE Grant, renal patients now have access to new tuck-away belts that comfortably and safely house the patient’s catheter, keep it clean between uses, and hold it in the appropriate position on the abdomen. Over 100 belts have been purchased to provide to patients who can’t afford them. As well, aging hemodialysis machines are replaced annually through grants from the Health Sciences Foundation.
Patients can receive mail daily Monday to Friday (except holidays). Items addressed to you must be clearly marked with your full name and room number.
For outgoing mail, stamps can be purchased at Seasons Gift Shop, located next to the Grand Staircase on Level 2. Canada Post mailboxes are located outside the Main Entrance.
