COVID-19 outbreak: Obstetrics update

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak on C-Ward at WLMH, obstetrics services will be temporarily redirected to Niagara Health, starting Friday, January 29 at 3 pm.

This redirect is anticipated to be in place for two weeks.

With C-Ward closed to new admissions, the site has lost 50 per cent of its bed capacity. In order to keep the Emergency Department functioning and supporting the community during this period, the obstetrical unit will be temporarily used for medical patient admissions.

For families expecting to deliverer at WLMH during this time, please contact Angela Leslie at 905-945-2253 ext 11436 or speak with your obstetrical care provider for further information. We appreciate your understanding as we work to keep all patients in our care safe.

As always, we thank our staff, physicians and partners at Niagara Health for their ongoing flexibility, professionalism and support of our patients.
