Obstetrical Care Update – October 11

Front entrance of West Lincoln Memorial Hospital

As a result of continued dialogue between Hamilton Health Sciences and Niagara Health and the strong advocacy by WLMH obstetricians for their patients to receive care closer to home, we’re pleased to share a development about obstetrical care.

Effective immediately, WLMH obstetricians will be able to support care for their patients, including those in labour and inductions, at Niagara Health – St. Catharines site while critical infrastructure upgrades take place at our WLMH site.

Pre-planned elective C-sections will continue to be provided at WLMH.

Expectant families can access further information here.

We are grateful to our partners and providers for their continued collaboration to support patient care.

As a reminder, the emergency department, day clinics, inpatient care and diagnostics are not affected by the renovations and continue to function while the construction is happening.
