GBGH delivers messages to patients as part of ‘Thinking of You’ program
April 11, 2020 – Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) has created an email service for loved ones to send messages to patients while in the hospital. Using the email address ThinkingOfYou@gbgh.on.ca or through the Thinking of You icon on the GBGH website (gbgh.on.ca), friends and family can email patients. The messages will be printed and delivered to patients during their stay in hospital.
“It’s never easy to spend time in the hospital, so we wanted to provide this additional service to enhance our patient’s experience,” says Gail Hunt, president and CEO, GBGH. “Due to visitor restrictions imposed to ensure safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, patients cannot see their loved ones in hospital. This is one way we can help deliver the messages of families and friends to offer support and love during difficult times.”
The Thinking of You service is expected to continue beyond the COVID-19 pandemic for loved ones who cannot visit patients in the hospital due to distance, illness or other reasons.
