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.
Thanks to a partnership with Tbaytel, free WiFi is now accessible to patients, families and visitors throughout the hospital.
Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre has been added to the list of hotspot locations that make up Tbaytel’s public WiFi network.
Tbaytel’s free public WiFi network is helping to create a smarter, more connected city by providing reliable high speed internet access at meaningful locations across Thunder Bay where the people who live here can really benefit the most.
Free WiFi makes it much easier to share important health updates and information with loved ones. As a visitor, it helps to pass the time when at the bedside of a sleeping family member. As patients, it helps to stay connected to work while here for care.
