Dances of Offering is fast approaching! Today we have a special blog post from
, explaining the
many benefits of building a Paediatric Ambulatory Clinic and providing even
more inspiration for those of us who are involved in this fundraising event. Toronto East General
The first of our two-stage renovation of the Paediatric Ambulatory Clinic is scheduled to open this fall. Located on the main level of the Hospital, the new Clinic will feature a welcoming reception area, five examination rooms, a breastfeeding clinic and an interview room. The key five programs offered as a part of the Paediatric Ambulatory Clinic will now be located in one space, offering convenience for parents and families and collaborative environment for Medical Staff.
, we understand
that some of the most fragile members of our community are our children. In
fact, more than 20% of the emergency visits at TEGH are paediatric. By
addressing a full spectrum of childhood and youth health concerns, TEGH is
playing a vital role in providing better care and enhancing the health of our
young patients. Toronto East General
Our plans are to consolidate the outpatient programs at TEGH and create one destination for paediatric care at the Hospital. Once completed, the Paediatric Ambulatory Clinic will be easy to access and will work collaboratively to ensure seamless delivery of care.
“A new Paediatric Ambulatory Clinic will allow us to consolidate services to provide a more efficient and welcoming environment for the patients and families we serve.”
