Rest assured that each and every community member is in good hands. Staff at Santé Manitouwadge Health, both on the front lines and in behind the scenes have been busy working tirelessly to help keep each and every one of us safe.
Members of our senior teams are attending many meetings on a daily basis with local, regional, provincial and federal partners, keeping up to date with the continuously changing COVID-19 pandemic and quickly putting into place any changes that are necessary.
Many changes were put in place at SMH to protect our patients and residents. Changes such as no visitors, active screening of staff, residents patients and anyone else entering the facility. Changes were made to regular appointments and how you connect with your family physician or other healthcare provider. We realize that some of these changes may be difficult, but they are necessary and we thank you for abiding by them.
Our best line of defense is still you, please follow the directions that have been given out, such as
You can find many resources on the Public Health Website to help guide with things such as social distancing, self-isolation, cleaning and disinfection amongst other things.

We opened up our COVID-19 Assessment Centre on March 18, 2020 in order to help keep potential cases out of the hospital/Long Term Care. If you are experiencing symptoms such as fever, difficulty breathing or a cough you can call or use the online assessment tool:
You may be directed to the assessment centre or may be directed to self-isolate and monitor symptoms. If you have severe symptoms do not hesitate to seek medical attention.
Plans have been developed in conjunction with the Township of Manitouwadge and the North of Superior Healthcare Group (Marathon and Terrace Bay) in the event we surpass our surge capacity at SMH.
From the team at Santé Manitouwadge Health, we extend our thanks to all the supporters and community members for helping keep Manitouwadge and our residents safe.

Manitouwadge Ontario, located in the heart of the Canadian Shield is 54 km north of the Trans-Canada Highway, and roughly 400 km east of Thunder Bay and 425 km west of Sault Ste. Marie.
Santé Manitouwadge Health is situated so that most of the patient rooms have a great view of Lake Manitouwadge and the hills beyond. The north wings house nine private patient care rooms and nine long term care rooms, with some rooms designated for pediatrics, palliative care, isolation and patient lounges.
Our Board, Management Team and staff have embarked on the creation of a local Health Hub for our community by integrating the following services; acute and LTC, Family Health Team, home nursing services (myCare), transportation (myRide), Clinic Management Services, Public Health Education, seniors programs and diabetes education.
In a small community where we know our patients and we don’t mean just clinically, the integration has offered our clients not only convenience, but also a more efficient navigation to healthcare services and improved outcomes.
This dedicated and visionary team of care givers remains passionate about the services they provide and integration continues to facilitate the transition to higher quality care.
The Hospital has the highest level of Accreditation bestowed by Accreditation Canada; Exemplary Standing.
