The hospitals of Erie-St. Clair West Region are moving forward with a regional plan to safely reopen and reschedule various elective and non-urgent surgical and clinical procedures, programs and clinics. Those hospitals include Windsor, Leamington, Chatham, and Sarnia.

This easing of the provincial directive, calls for a gradual and incremental implementation of carefully thought-out resumption of scheduled cases.

The hospitals say that the earliest that some services and/or procedures will come back online will be Monday, June 1st, 2020.

Each hospital has developed a plan that was shared and approved regionally and reviewed as well by primary care leadership, home and community services and with input from the various hospitals’ patient and caregiver advisory committee(s) membership.

They will monitor the situation daily within each hospital and formally compare findings at least twice weekly as a region to determine if changes are necessary to the plan.

Patients will be notified of opportunities to reschedule surgeries and other appointments, and you are asked not to contact the hospital about a postponed appointment.

This includes patients who are waiting for surgery, who will hear directly from their physician’s/surgeon’s office.
