All the news for Mattawa Hospital and Algonquin Nursing Home

Mattawa and Area Family Health Team Read more

Mattawa and Area Family Health Team

In May, we announced that the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care had approved our Hospital with the funding for an interprofessional care team.  Patients who are part of a primary care team typically report higher levels of access to care compared to Ontario residents in general. The key drivers for enhancing patient access include reduced wait times, and interprofessional services.  Patients are able to see the right provider, at the right time! We are pleased to provide you with additional information on the care that will be available at the Mattawa and Area Family Health Team.

We are extremely happy to inform everyone that the construction of the new Nursing Home and Health Hub is coming along wonderfully.  We are on time, with a tentative move in date of October 20th, 2018!  We are so touched by all the support and feedback we have received from our community, we hope to soon offer some tours to the public and showcase this beautiful new home.  Stay tuned.

We have heard from you that there were some questions regarding the color of the brick that was chosen and decided to share with you the process and rational behind the beautiful red brick.

How did we choose the red brick - During the planning stages of this project, community members, families and residents were presented with several choices for the exterior finish of the home.  Many engagement sessions took place and everyone participated in the decision.

New Health Hub to Bring Benefits for All

Mattawa’s new Health Hub is now under construction on the Mattawa Hospital campus. The largest component will be the completely redeveloped Algonquin Nursing Home, bringing 73 beds in a beautiful home-like setting with excellent care and support from professional health care services.

Our new Hospice Suite will also have additional space, privacy and conveniences for families and patients. We have had a temporary Hospice for a year and are so pleased that it will become a permanent service and a separate, dedicated space.

This year we are pleased to welcome Derek Forgie as our special guest and emcee.  Actor, comedian and activist Derek Forgie is a remarkable plate-spinner (metaphorically, of course).  When he’s not entertaining the daily in-studio audiences at CTV’s The Social he manages to balance a diet of stand-up comedy, activism and popping up on your TV screen.

Hospice Suite to Become Permanent

Mattawa’s new Health Hub will bring many benefits and services to everyone in our community, from young families to our older population.  Our expanded Hospice Suite will be one of those valuable services.

Hospice is a specialized type of care of the patient and family when cure is no longer possible. This type of care is designed to relieve suffering and to support people in the final phase of a terminal illness. The purpose is to allow patients to receive end of life care all the while creating a home like environment for both the patient and their loved ones.   Since the opening of Mattawa’s temporary Hospice in March 2017, hospice care has been delivered in one of our hospital rooms that has been transformed to create a home like environment

A Key Benefit of the new Health Hub is the complete redevelopment of The Algonquin Nursing Home

Mattawa residents know we are very fortunate to have a long-term care home right in our community. Many small rural communities have to travel long distances to visit elderly family in long-term care Homes.

But in Mattawa, we have come to appreciate the value of the Algonquin Nursing Home: it allows our beloved family members to stay in our community and continue to be surrounded by family and friends in the familiar place they have called home for a lifetime.

The Algonquin Nursing Home has been serving our elderly residents for 40 years, with 73 beds, remarkable staff providing the care and support we all want for our loved ones.

A truly “patient-centred” model!

The Mattawa Health Hub will bring several health services together to one convenient location.

Construction is now underway: on budget and on time!

Patients, visitors, residents and their families will be able to visit one single location at the Mattawa Hospital whether you are seeing your family doctor, visiting a friend at the Algonquin Nursing Home, a family member in the new Hospice, or supporting a friend who is receiving counselling services.  This model will make health care services more easily accessible for everyone in our community. Everything on one single campus! And even more convenient when the weather turns cold next fall!  Our Doctors and other health care professionals will also benefit:  they can travel easily from one facility to another just by walking down the hall, meaning they can see more patients every day, especially during patient emergency situations.
