We are pleased to report in partnership with the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU), the Enhanced Surveillance period for COVID-19 on the Med/Surg Unit has been completed as there has been no further transmission.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we work to keep our patients, staff, physicians and visitors safe.
Stevenson Memorial Hospital is pleased to return to 24/7 visiting hour operation.
Visitors continue to be required to wear medical-grade masks (no cloth masks) upon entry to the hospital, which will be provided. Visitors must wash their hands before entering and after leaving a patient’s room. We ask visitors do not enter the hospital if experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or are a high-risk contact of a confirmed case. Hospitalized patients are often immunocompromised and it is important that visitors are diligent in protecting their own family and friends as well as the other neighbouring patients.
No visiting will be permitted for any COVID-19 positive/suspected patients. Family members of our patients can contact our Patient Experience department to book a time to speak with their loved one through technology such as iPads or tablets. Please call ext. 2310 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
