Important information on COVID-19 / Renseignements importants sur la COVID-19!

We are asking all patients and visitors coming to HSN to please wear a mask as an added step to reduce the spread of germs and protect vulnerable patients. Handmade masks are NOT acceptable. When you arrive at the hospital as a patient or care partner a hospital approved mask will be provided to you and you will be expected to wear it during your time at HSN to keep yourself, other patients and care partners and our staff, physicians, learners and volunteers safe.

Patients going for a procedure where they must remove the mask will be asked to keep it ready to be put back on once the procedure is completed.

Before coming to the hospital, please check our COVID-19 info page for updates.

Logo Information

This is a contemporary DNA helix that emphasizes the letter “S” for Sciences and Santé. The DNA represents the acute personal level of service and fine attention to detail that will be delivered with the new health care system. The interweaving of the two helices represents the cooperation and connectivity of the multifaceted health network. The differentiation of the two helices symbolizes a strong historical foundation and a bright and growing future. The dominant blue helix points to the northeast. Scientifically speaking, the double helix is a strong icon for research.

As the visual identity for HSN, it is imperative that the logo be displayed in bilingual format on all materials that are used from the organization, its various sites and affiliated organizations.
