Low Tech Wearables Warm Up Patients on Moving Day!
After 68 years of serving Oakville from its legacy site, December 13 was moving day for the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital to its new, state of the art, New Oakville Hospital site on Dundas and Third Line. Its status now upgraded from community to regional hospital.
Years of fundraising, building and detailed planning went into the preparations of the 1.6 million sq. ft. site resulting in a much bigger 457 beds hospital with shelled in space to grow to 602 beds in the future. The hospital is equipped with the latest in technology, and its design took into account every moment from admission to discharge with patients’ comfort and well-being in mind, not to mention the patient’ family that may be staying there to care for their loved one.
At iCare Home Health, we pride ourselves in being a boutique, community based Home Healthcare agency with a focus on making a difference in the lives of the people that we serve and the communities where we operate. While we are proud to modestly participate and/ or support past fundraising efforts during the building stage, a golden opportunity came up to do just a little more on moving day.
In anticipation of a cold December day, even during our warmer than usual winter, we became privy that patients lined up to be moved from the Legacy to the New hospital could use some head and hand gear to keep them warm. It took our team no time to agree to fund the project. Off to work we went to get our low-tech wearables ready on time.
On December 13, we were pleased to watch patients being rolled out into the train of waiting ambulances, one by one, warmly cuddled in our low tech wearables.
“Making a Difference in our community is an integral part of iCare Home Health DNA, and we are proud to live our values in a meaningful way and support our community. We are happy to have had the opportunity to contribute to moving day and look forward to continue to support OTMH ( Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital) on an ongoing basis” said, Rick Menassa, President, iCare Home Health Inc.
