Our Annual Reports to the Community and a Year in Review provide an overview of patient stories, initiatives, progress updates on our Strategic Plan, and improvements in our delivery of patient care through contributions to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation and in collaboration with the Thunder Bay Regional Health Research Institute. We are constantly exploring ways to improve accessibility within our Hospital for people with disabilities. Our Accessibility Advisory Team works actively during the year through meetings and internal audits to prepare our annual Accessibility Plan. The Plan evaluates the past year’s accomplishments as well as outlines the course of action for the upcoming year. Our Team utilizes both provincial standards and your comments, concerns and ideas to help shape the annual plan. We invite you to review the Accessibility Plan and welcome any feedback you may have on how we might improve our accessibility.
