Ross Memorial gets new CFO

Ross Memorial Hospital is impressing upon the local community the severity of the challenges the hospital is facing today due to high patient volumes and a second COVID-19 outbreak.

The hospital’s Medical Middle Unit has been declared in COVID-19 outbreak today, joining the Medical North Unit that was declared in outbreak on August 5, by the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit.

Patients with less urgent conditions are implored to consider alternate options for care such as their primary health care provider, pharmacist, after-hours clinic, virtual care, or calling Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000.

After-hours clinics can often treat non-urgent and minor illnesses and ailments, such as earaches, sore throats or prescription refills.

Ross Memorial Hospital health-care professionals are working around the clock to treat patients as quickly as possible while continuing to administer exceptional care.
