The average number of patients receiving ultrasound therapy in the Physiotherapy Department has doubled with the addition of a new ultrasound machine, thanks to Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant. Ultrasound therapy is given to patients before an operation to improve surgical outcomes, and after an operation to reduce scarring, improve mobility and reduce pain.
Thanks to a partnership with Tbaytel, free WiFi is now accessible to patients, families and visitors throughout the hospital.
Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre has been added to the list of hotspot locations that make up Tbaytel’s public WiFi network.
Tbaytel’s free public WiFi network is helping to create a smarter, more connected city by providing reliable high speed internet access at meaningful locations across Thunder Bay where the people who live here can really benefit the most.
