NE LHIN Providing Palliative Care Suites Across Northeast

Palliative care suites are coming to towns across the Northeast of Ontario.

The North East Local Health Integration Network has announced that they, alongside the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, are providing 17 new one-bedroom hospice suites in hospitals across the northeast.

The province is providing $105,000 of yearly funding per bed to each of the 17 hospitals, which includes Sensenbrenner Hospital in Kapuskasing and Notre-Dame Hospital in Hearst.

NE LHIN CEO Jeremy Stevenson says they are committed to improving the quality of palliative end-of-life care across the Northeast.
