Many patients arrive at our hospital in an emergency and have absolutely nothing with them. This is often true of the loved ones who accompany them. You might even have been in this situation yourself.
And others are here for an extended period, often months, while they wait to find a long-term home. And if they don't have close family or friends, they probably don't have the comforts of home or even simple personal care items. At the Ajax Pickering Hospital Foundation, we love seeing the smiles on the faces of hospital staff members when they can provide their patients with these basic necessities.
It’s this human touch that makes our hospital so special and makes a hospital stay, especially a long one, so much easier on patients and family members.
Help the staff at Ajax Pickering Hospital balance the "high-tech" with the "high touch" when looking after their patients.
