Sensenbrenner Hospital in Kapuskasing say it’s ready to handle any COVID-19 cases in our region. Assistant Administrator Chantal Boyer-Brochu says the Hospital has been preparing since last March including the addition of a section strictly for COVID-19.

“So we have three intensive care beds that are now available,” she said. “We also have 15 new hospital beds that we have acquired since March. Those beds area available to anyone that comes to the hospital.”

Boyer-Brochu says some important changes have been made at the facility to keep everyone safe.

“We transferred the long term care patients into a separate ward where they are isolated from the patients,” she said. “So those 15 beds would be there to help if ever there is a surge in patients.”
