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.

Our Research

HSNRI supports collaborative research efforts amongst clinicians, researchers, learners, regional partners and industry to generate findings and solutions for the people of Northeastern Ontario. Current research priorities include, but are not limited to Cancer Solutions, Cardiovascular Health, Healthy Aging and Indigenous Health. These research priorities were identified by extensive community consultations with diverse partners and stakeholders. They represent the health challenges in Northeastern Ontario; thus, together in collaborative research efforts, HSNRI will strive to generate research that improves health outcomes for the people in our region.

Cancer Solutions

Northeastern Ontario has significantly higher rates of cancer incidents and mortality than the rest of Ontario. Recognizing this is a health priority for the region, HSNRI is supporting cancer patients through clinical trials, promoting tumour biology cancer research that looks at treatment efficacy and drug discovery, and providing personalized treatment solutions for patients. The Northeast Cancer Centre and its Clinical Trials arm welcome academic and industry-sponsored trials to help Northerners gain access to important treatments.

Cardiovascular Health

Cardiovascular health is an important clinical and research area given the complications Northerners face with the multiple disease challenges within this area. Once more, the region is faced with higher rates of coronary artery disease, heart failure, heart valve disease, congenital heart disease are other cardiovascular-related diseases. Our researchers are evaluating treatments and approaches at a population health level using administrative databases to help measure and improve cardiovascular care in the region. 

Healthy Aging

Healthy Aging research is an important consideration for Northeastern Ontario, as the region has an increasingly aging population. The research priority is designed to promote healthy aging and vitality across the lifespan. The priority also focuses on the discovery of therapies and solutions for multiple conditions associated with aging. This focus on healthy aging will move toward a lifespan approach and intersects with HSN’s significant commitment to health care redesign through social accountability. 

Indigenous Health

Indigenous peoples face unique health challenges given the vast expanse of the region and issues with access to health care services and providers. As a result, people in this region have poorer health status and face unique challenges due to culture and geography. HSNRI’s commitment to population health is to improve the quality of care and promote better health outcomes and community-based partnerships to support healthy communities. Our population health research focuses on the specialized needs of populations such as Indigenous peoples; those with chronic health conditions; and those in rural and remote areas.
