Patients with mobility issues can now exercise their arms, wrists and shoulders while in bed instead of having to be moved to the gym in the Physiotherapy Department. A new, mobile arm ergometer unit, purchased through a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant, is easily transported to a patient’s bedside for required cardiovascular strengthening and conditioning, increasing accessibility for these patients.
We are committed to improving our Accessible environment for patients and families, visitors, volunteers and staff requiring accommodation.
We invite you to view our 2017 – 2020 Accessibility Plan, which reflects feedback provided by many community members. Areas of focus include:
You are also welcome to view our Accessibility Plan 2016-Multi-year Update to learn about past accomplishments.
Our Accessibility Implementation Team works actively to implement and monitor the Accessibility Plan. Provincial standards, as well as your comments, concerns and ideas help. We welcome any feedback you may have on how we might improve accessibility.
