In the current context, the Institute has implemented several tools for its users such as telephone follow-up and, in some clinics, consultation by videoconference. As Sylvain Bédard, patient coordinating partner at CEPPP, says, "We stay at home, but we are not alone!"
On March 14, 2020, in order to protect the most vulnerable, the Government of Quebec announced the suspension of visits to all Hospital centers.
As a preventive measure, the Montreal Heart Institute increases control over entry and exit. All visitors and users should use the main entrance located near the visitors parking lot located North of Saint-Zotique street.
The entrance to the Viau Street Research Center, which leads directly to the blood sampling Center, is temporarily closed.
Only patients who consult the emergency department can transit through the emergency entrance on Bélanger Street. No visitor will be allowed to transit through the emergency entrance to circulate in the hospital.
The EPIC Center suspends its sports activities and its secondary prevention and diabetes clinics from March 13, 2020 until further notice.
Anxious to help you stay active, and to support you during this period when many efforts are required of each, the EPIC Center team offers you content via its Facebook page. From Monday to Friday at 11:30 a.m., an activity session of approximately 15 minutes will be offered live.
All information concerning the activities of the EPIC Center is found in the weekly press releases in order to keep you well informed of the situation.
All patients will receive a call before the scheduled date of their appointment. Most appointments will be transformed into a telephone or remote appointments.
