Effective Saturday, March 21st, 2020, visitors are being restricted to only patients who require end-of-life care at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare. These patients are limited to one visitor at a time and must be over the age of 18.

“This decision does not come easily for the hospital, recognizing the impact this will have on our patients, their loved-ones and families physically, emotionally and from a mental health perspective. Knowing this, the hospital has worked closely with its Patient and Family Advisory Council Chair to ensure the organization has proactive responses to some of its anticipated questions and concerns,” a news release from the hospital said.

HDGH is in the process of establishing a Family Support Team. This team will provide companionship and support for our patients. The west-end hospital is also exploring technological solutions to support communication between patients and their loved ones.
