Accessibility

In order to ensure that every patient, family member and visitor feels welcome at Pembroke Regional Hospital, we are committed to meeting accessibility needs for people with disabilities in a timely manner.

 

Our goal is to provide everyone who walks through our door with barrier-free access to our facilities, policies, programs, practices and services.

 

French Language Services:

French language services are available throughout the hospital upon request. Please speak with any member of your health care team if you require services in French.

 

TTY phone service for the deaf, deafened and hard of hearing:

An amplified phone and a hands-free phone are available for our patients who need one. Please speak with a member of your health care team if you require one of these phones.

 

Service animals and pet visitation:

PRH recognizes the value and therapeutic benefit of pet visitation and service animals. Please speak with any of your health care team members and they will be happy to assist you with the details for arranging this.  

 

Accessibility Plan:  

As required by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA), Pembroke Regional Hospital prepares annually a plan to identify and remove barriers and improve opportunities for people with disabilities. People with disabilities are involved in the process from the identification to the removal and prevention of barriers within Pembroke Regional Hospital.

 

Pembroke Regional Hospital also ensures that its feedback processes are accessible to individual needs and that our hospital is able to accommodate communication supports when requested.  

 

The Hospital’s accessibility plan can be found here. The Hospital's multi-year accessibility plan can be found here. Our 2017 Accessibility Compliance Report can be found here. On request, the plans can be made available in alternative formats, such as CD in electronic text, or in large print.
