January 26, 2021 – To better understand how Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) can best serve women in our community, the hospital is launching two surveys (English and French) related to the Birthing program. The aim of the survey is to better understand the experience of recent patients, as well as hear from future patients about their concerns related to COVID-19.

“At GBGH, we are continually looking at ways we can improve our patient care across the spectrum – whether it be new mothers or senior patients – all feedback is important,” says Angie Saini, vice president, Clinical Services and chief nursing executive, GBGH. “By asking moms who’ve recently delivered about their experience, as well as mothers-to-be who plan to give birth at GBGH about their concerns, we can improve the care we provide. By consistently engaging our community, it helps us to continually improve our services to meet their needs and expectations.”

The English survey can be found on GBGH’s website under the Obstetrical Unit –

The French survey can be found on GBGH’s French website under Obstétriques –

Both surveys will be available on the websites until March 31, 2021.

In 2017, GBGH entered into a joint birthing program with Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH). Through this partnership, patients have access to high quality birthing services close to home across a corridor of care stretching between OSMH’s and GBGH’s catchment areas. For birthing services, GBGH is a Level 1 centre providing service for low-risk births, while Orillia is a Level 2 centre for higher risk births.
