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 will still be seen in our Emergency Department, regardless if they are wearing a mask. Patients going for a procedure where they must remove their mask will be asked to store it with their personal items.

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

    Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic

    The Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic is dedicated to the well-being of high risk infants by providing medical and therapy screenings to infants who were born prematurely (32 weeks or less) or who have other risk factors.

    Skilled professionals will assess your child and may arrange early treatment for developmental difficulties, including problems with movement or feeding.

    Appointments are arranged at regular intervals up to two (2) years of age.  Children who are born extremely premature will also be seen at four (4) years of age.
