Celebrating Nutrition Month at the Mattawa Family Health Team

This past summer, the Mattawa Family Health Team built raised garden beds to grow herbs and vegetables for community members. The garden harvest was donated to the Mattawa and Area Food Bank, and utilized in cooking and gardening workshops.

This October, the Family Health Team is hosting a Fall Garden Harvest Event to celebrate its first growing season. Members of the community are invited to enjoy light refreshments, try new food using ingredients from the garden, take home fall inspired recipes and cooking tips, and take part in fun activities (including garlic planting!) for a chance to win some great prizes. Recipes will feature a variety of herbs generously provided by F.J.’s Blooming Greenhouse.  

The event will be held on October 2nd from 11:30-2 pm in the main lobby of the Mattawa Hospital. For more information email Jenna Chiandet, RD at JChiandet@mattawahospital.ca, or call 705-744-5511 ext. 4110.

New Algonquin Nursing Home will provide expanded services and improved continuity of care for the community.

MATTAWA, ON –  Today marks the grand opening of the new Alqonguin Nursing Home. An integral part of the Mattawa Health Hub, the newly constructed home will house Long Term Care, a Hospice Suite, Day Program and Indigenous Services and a Community Multi-Purpose Room.

The Algonquin Nursing Home has been serving elderly residents for 40 years. It was opened with 60 extended care beds in 1976 by Dr. S.F. Monestime and Mrs. Zena Monestime. In 1984, one wing of the facility was extended to provide 12 additional beds, allowing even more elderly family members to remain in the community that they called home for their entire lives. The home was accredited with “Exemplary Standing” in 2017 for a second four-year cycle by Accreditation Canada.

Known for its compassionate care and professional staff, the home required upgrades to improve infection control, privacy and amenities for those who need mobility supports.

The new 73 bed facility located at 207 Turcotte Park Road brings the home in line with the recent changes to Ministry of Health and Long Term Care legislation and is a vital part of the Health Hub Model that puts the patient at the centre of care.

Community Garden at the Mattawa Family Health Team

This summer, the Mattawa Family Health Team (FHT) decided to utilize unused space on the property to start a small community garden. “This is the first year for the garden, and so far things have been growing well,” says Jenna, dietitian at the Family Health Team who coordinates the garden. “We are starting off with growing some staples like tomatoes, peppers, onions, radishes, lettuce, and lots of different herbs (sage, parsley, basil, stevia, chives, thyme, and oregano), and really just wanting to see how things grow in this space.”

Part of the harvest will be donated to the food bank and other organizations in town, along with recipes to spark some ideas on what to cook with the herbs and veggies. The FHT has also collaborated with a few organizations in town to host cooking and gardening workshops, including the Metis Nation of Ontario, the Mattawa and Area Food Bank, and the Mental Health Support Centre. 

We want to hear from you! Read more

We want to hear from you!

The Hôpital de Mattawa Hospital is committed to quality improvement and patient satisfaction.  We pride ourselves on ensuring that our patients have a positive experience with all members of our care team.  Unfortunately, that does not always occur and for this reason we have a clear process to respond to all concerns. 

All complaints are taken extremely seriously and are addressed immediately as we strive to continually improve all services delivered in our organization.  We encourage any patients or families who have concerns regarding the care they received at our Hospital to please lodge a formal complaint.  This should be done in writing to our Vice President Clinical Services / Chief Nursing Officer Tanya Bélanger. Concerns can also be submitted via our Suggestion Box in the Emergency Department waiting room, on our website or verbally by contacting the VP Clinical Services. 

MATTAWA IS THE PLACE TO BE! Read more

MATTAWA IS THE PLACE TO BE!

Many of us have just celebrated the Easter weekend with family and friends. Regardless of the work and advance preparations required, these family gatherings remind us of what really matters. It is our family and their health that matters. In many small communities families can’t count on high quality health care close to home.

But in Mattawa we are so fortunate! Not only do we have outstanding healthcare available 24/7, we are also on the verge of opening a new Health Hub in Mattawa that will bring together a variety of health services onto a single site. In addition, we are about to open a brand new long-term care home so that we can keep our families close with the care and comfort we want for our loved ones.

We have seen so many small rural communities begin to decline, often because healthcare is not a priority. But that is not the case in Mattawa!
