Judith C. Harris Bursary 2016
The Manitouwadge General Hospital is pleased to announce that the recipient of the 2016 Judith C. Harris Bursary is Chelsea Malakoff. Chelsea will pursue her university education in the health care field.
Mrs. Marcia Newton on behalf of Mrs. Harris, Board Chair presented the $1,000 bursary letter at the 2016 High School Graduation Ceremonies.
The bursary is presented to a local student who plans to pursue their education in a health care related field with the hope that someday, the Hospital may benefit from having our own “home grown students” return to the community to work as a health care professional.
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.
The Manitouwadge General Hospital 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.
