All hospital visits suspended until further notice
March 14, 2020
The health and safety of our patients is our number one priority as we continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) situation.
As of Sunday, March 15, 2020, we are taking the additional precaution of suspending visitors until further notice. This is consistent with recent guidelines on enhanced public health measures provided by the Ministry of Health.
We ask that no family member or visitors come to Runnymede during this time. We will ensure to update family on a patient’s condition if anything changes.
We are also providing families with the opportunity to set up video calls with their family member which will be facilitated by our activation department. If this is something you are interested in, please contact our activation department at 416 762 7316 ext. 2224.
We understand that this might be a difficult time for you and your family member and we appreciate your cooperation. The safety and well-being of our vulnerable patients is our top priority.
If you are currently a student, contractor or volunteer we request that you reach out to your contact at Runnymede for further information before coming to the hospital.
We will continue to keep our website updated and will advise if any additional precautions become necessary. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
