A new image guidance system is helping surgeons pinpoint locations in the body with precise accuracy for procedures such as pinpointing a brain tumour of finding an exact insertion spot of a spinal screw thanks to a $230,000 grant from the Health Sciences Foundation. This level of precision means less damage to healthy tissue during surgery resulting in better outcomes, reduced pain and shorter recovery times for patients.
Telephones are available to patients at a rate of $3.50 per day, payable at discharge at the Patient Billing and Cashier Services.
Public telephones are located throughout the Hospital.
The Hospital uses a third party long distance company for our long distance services. Long distance calls may be made using a Calling Card, Credit Card, Collect or Third Party Charge.
To make a long distance call:
TTY telephones for the hearing impaired are available at the public phones located in the Main Lobby, the Emergency Department and the Cafeteria. Portable TTY phones and telephone amplifiers for the Hearing Impaired are available upon request. Call Switchboard by dialing “0” for the loan. A replacement fee will be charged if the item is not returned to Switchboard once the patient is discharged.
Cell phones may be used in approved areas that have been indicated via signage.
