Toronto, ON March 18, 2020 – Lifemark Health Group’s mission for over 20 years has been to enrich the health of Canadians. This is now more important than ever as together we face a global pandemic. Lifemark will be continuously modifying its delivery of services, monitoring COVID-19, and following recommendations from governmental and health agencies across the country.
At the current time, Lifemark continues to provide in-person services to patients that require essential or urgent care. This is occurring with mandatory COVID-19 screening before all in-person treatment, in accordance with the Canadian Public Health Agency, provincial health agencies and other leading sources. For most patients, a Virtual Care model is used. This allows continued care to patients across Canada while supporting public health initiatives.
“As rehabilitation professionals, we have an essential role to play in the context of infectious disease outbreaks and in doing so we help reduce the strain on our public hospitals, allowing them to better focus their resources on fighting COVID-19, said Peter Stymiest, CEO of Lifemark Health Group. “The health and safety of our patients and team members is our absolute priority. Together with our staff, we are working nationally with our healthcare partners and agencies as we navigate delivering care and prioritizing the health and safety of all, every step of the way. We would like to thank our clinicians for their support and unwavering commitment to the healthcare of our patients.”
Lifemark’s safety, quality and clinical teams have been working as part of the company’s pandemic planning process to ensure that patients and team members have the information they need to keep up to date and to make informed decisions regarding their health and service delivery options, that the right people, processes and systems are in place to safely provide and sustain services to patients and that all Lifemark facilities adhere to strict policies and procedures related to COVID-19.
