Toronto (Aug. 13, 2003) - University Health Network will make all efforts to provide its scheduled services for patients on Monday.
The three hospitals of the University Health Network – Toronto General Hospital, Toronto Western Hospital, and Princess Margaret Hospital – are encouraging patients to attend their scheduled appointments at the three hospitals. Clinic appointments, physician appointments, emergency and elective medical/surgical procedures are continuing, with some delays. The emergency departments at Toronto General Hospital and Toronto Western Hospital remain open.
Tom Closson, President & CEO of University Health Network, said that only a small number of surgeries will be rescheduled because current blood shortages make them unsafe to perform. In those cases, the patients will be contacted and informed that their procedure has been rescheduled.
"Other than this small number of surgical cases, we want to provide our patients access to care and we will be moving forward with scheduled surgeries, medical procedures and clinical appointments," said Mr. Closson. "We are urging patients to keep their appointments unless otherwise notified. There may be some delays and cancellations, but we'll do our best to serve all scheduled patients."
Staff are expected to come to work for their normal shifts. At this time, visitors are asked not to come to the hospital unless a patient needs their assistance or support.
