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.

    For Patients

    Research at Health Sciences North Research Institute (HSNRI) is focused on improving care for patients in northern Ontario and around the world. One of the ways we do this is through clinical trials and research studies. Patients can play a crucial role in this process by volunteering for clinical trials, surveys or other clinical research studies.

    When visiting Health Sciences North, you may be approached by trained research staff with a request to take part in a clinical trial or research study. Whether or not you participate is your choice, however, if you do, your participation is extremely valuable. The results from clinical trials help us study therapies and treatments that will improve the health of all patients.

    The review and conduct of clinical trials at Health Sciences North and Health Sciences North Research Institute must comply with the guidelines, standards, and regulations of the Health Canada, Food and Drugs Act, Good Clinical Practice: Consolidated Guideline, the Tri-Council Policy Statement on Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans and legislation pertaining to disclosure of personal health information.

    If you are interested in participating in a clinical trial, the best approach is to speak with your health care provider. You may also want to refer to or Both of these websites provide a searchable database of clinical trials.
