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 acceptable as are those available at retailers in our community. Patients going for a procedure where they must remove their mask will be asked to store it with their personal items. If you arrive at the hospital as a patient or care partner and do not have a mask, one 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.

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

Ontario Improving Access to Health Care for Children in Sudbury

NEO Kids and Family Program Receives Planning Grant from Province

Friday, January 19, 2018/Categories: Health Sciences North, NEO Kids and Family

Ontario is supporting Health Sciences North to plan an expansion of the children’s health centre in Sudbury,  ensuring children and their families will have access to quality health care and social services closer to home. 

Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, and Glenn Thibeault, MPP for Sudbury, were at Health Sciences North today to announce that the province is providing a grant to help plan for the expansion of the NEO Kids and Family Program.

This project would allow patients who are currently receiving specialized children’s services from other health centres in Ontario to get the care they need closer to home. Support from the province will also help Health Sciences North to:

  • Bring together paediatric outpatient health and social services at one site 
  • Deliver health promotion services with a focus on chronic diseases and risk factors impacting children 
  • Improve health care services and service delivery for local and Indigenous communities in the northeast 
  • Coordinate with other health care providers to help patients with advanced care needs. 

Building and expanding hospitals is part of Ontario’s plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change. The plan includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.
