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.

Welcome to the NEO Kids & Family Program!

 

Birthing Centre

With approximately 1700 deliveries each year, the Birthing Centre provides services before, during and after the birth of your baby.  Our role is to assist parents in learning as much as they can about what to expect prior to the birth of their baby, and preparing for care at home.

Our 22-bed obstetrical unit consists of:

  • 3 triage rooms
  • 6 labour rooms
  • 13 post partum beds

We provide family-centered care in a comfortable "care by parent" setting.  Sleep chairs are available in most post partum rooms to accommodate one support person for an overnight stay.

Patients presenting for Labour and Delivery are assessed in the obstetrical triage.  The department is staffed by OB/GYN physicians, family physicians with OB privileges, midwives, and a collaborative interdisciplinary team.

Children's Treatment Centre

The Children’s Treatment Centre is a family-centred community-based rehabilitation facility providing assessment, treatment, consultation and education to children and young adults with motor and communication impairments.
