Helping families navigate:

To assist patients and families with their transition, our Patient Navigator Program will collaborate with your team and the family to provide assistance with issues related to travel, accommodation, and navigating their way around the hospital and in the city. Furthermore, for patients living outside of Ontario, our Patient Navigator will assist physicians in completing an Out-of-Province Prior Approval Application to the Provincial Ministry of Health. Please contact us for more information.
