Bluewater Health is gradually moving towards pre-pandemic practices and services, one of which is the discontinuation of portering services.
With the ramping down of portering services, Bluewater Health is encouraging patients who require any form of assistance (ie: mobility, language translation, cognitive barriers) to bring a ‘plus one’ to accompany them at the time of their appointment.
To accommodate the additional individuals in the hospital, Bluewater Health will be increasing seating in waiting areas. Phasing out of portering services will begin in July.
Please note that screening upon entry to the hospital will continue.
