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 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.

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.

PLUS – Tuesday Practice Round, Funky Cruise and BBQ

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 Read more

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
