Research has found that regular physical activity appears as effective as psychotherapy for treating mild to moderate depression. Therapists also report that patients who exercise regularly simply feel better and are less likely to overeat or abuse alcohol and drugs. Source: CMHA

Screening
[Updated May 28, 2020 at 4:40 p.m. – this information is subject to change.]

HPHA has closed all non-essential entrances in an effort to control and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Patients and family/caregivers are asked to enter through the following entrances:
  • Clinton Public Hospital – Emergency Department
  • St. Marys Memorial Hospital – Main Entrance
  • Seaforth Community Hospital – Main Entrance
  • Stratford General Hospital
    • Main Entrances (Cambria St. & West Gore St.) 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
    • Emergency Department (for emergency care and after hours, 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.)
Anyone entering an HPHA hospital site will be asked to share:
  • your name
  • purpose for your visit
  • if you have symptoms of a respiratory illness
  • recent travel history
Screening information will be recorded to assist with COVID-19 contact tracing and case management if needed. Patient, family and caregiver privacy will be maintained.

Screening may lead to line-ups and delays entering the hospital. Plan ahead. Leave early and allow for extra time. We appreciate your patience.

If you are screened without risk, you will be permitted entry to the hospital. Staff will direct you to your appointment location/loved one’s unit.

Masks
Please note you will be provided with a disposable medical grade mask and will be required to wear it for the duration of your visit. If you come to the hospital wearing a cloth mask, you will be asked to remove that mask. If during your visit, your mask becomes wet or soiled, it must be replaced. New masks can be obtained from health care staff.

Gloves
If you arrive at a hospital site with gloves on, you will be asked to remove your gloves and perform hand hygiene frequently during your visit.

Same-day Re-entry
If you leave the hospital and plan to return the same day, you will be screened again.

If You Do Not Pass Screening
Anyone who does not pass active screening will be provided with the appropriate next steps.
