At HGT/Campbell House, we recognize patient and family-centered care as a guiding principle in the policies and processes we develop. We have recently updated our visiting policy which is intended to balance this principle in association with the most current Ontario Health and Ministry of Health guidance regarding patient visitor recommendations. Aligning with the Province’s “Framework for Reopening our Province” and COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open, a phased approach for reopening to visitation will be employed.

Determining when to reopen (or reduce) visitation will depend upon:

  • Virus spread and containment in the local area (North Simcoe Muskoka) and at HGT/Campbell House
  • Health system capacity in acute care, Long Term Care (LTC) and at HGT/Campbell House
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) supply
  • Staffing and resources

Please contact our staff if you have any questions with regards to our current visiting policy. Hospice Georgian Triangle recognizes that each patient and their family have different needs. Patient and family members may request additional visitors. All requests will go through an approval process. Please note that although all requests will be considered; not all requests will be granted. During COVID-19 pandemic, visiting restrictions are essential for the protection of our patients, staff and visitors.
