August 20, 2018 – To better understand how women in the community feel about birthing services at Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH), the organization is launching two surveys – one about “pre-delivery services” and one about the “care they received post-partum”. The aim of the survey is to determine what the hospital is doing well and what could be improved.
“We are excited to be moving forward and growing our birthing program here at GBGH,” says Lucille Perreault, vice president, Patient Services and chief nursing executive, GBGH. “We are committed to providing the best care we can to our patients. By engaging our community, it helps us to continually improve our services to meet their needs.”
In an effort to continually improve the birthing experience at GBGH, the two surveys are intended to gather information on what the community needs from the hospital to improve. The “pre-delivery survey” focuses on understanding the resources available for expecting mothers and helps the hospital understand what information mothers would find most useful. The survey for post-partum mothers seeks information about their experience while in the hospital. The survey also guides the program to better understand the resources families are interested in both in and out of the hospital.
The pre- and post-delivery surveys are online for new and experienced mothers. They can be found via our website – gbgh.on.ca – and through GBGH’s Facebook page.
In 2017, GBGH entered into a joint birthing program with Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH). Through GBGH’s Facebook page.
