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.
