Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital prides itself on having a state of the art, newly renovated Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The unit is well equipped to support women and their babies from across North Simcoe Muskoka who experience complications associated with pregnancy and labour where the services of an advanced Level 2 NICU are required.

Our Hospital also provides regional level paediatric services to a large geographical area. The program includes a 6-bed Paediatric unit and a network of comprehensive outpatient services to support children and their families.  Services are provided to infants, children and youth from 0 - 18 years who live in Simcoe County, Muskoka, Parry Sound, Haliburton and surrounding areas.

Because of the wide range of advanced services related to obstetrics, paediatrics and neonatal care at OSMH, there are always new equipment and technology needs. We strive to provide the best care to our most vulnerable patient sector, and this is made possible by the ongoing generous support of our donor community.

Paediatric Outpatient Project

The Hospital’s Outpatient Paediatric Clinic provides an extensive array of services for kids and their families across the region, including complex care, diabetes, asthma, eating disorder, mental health, genetics and more. Between the triplets, our family has used most of these services.

Right now the Outpatient Paeds Program is spread out between three different sites. Complex Care is held on the third floor of the Hospital. The paediatricians have their offices across the street in the Kiwanis Children’s Centre, and Children’s Developmental Services located at an off-site building on Mississaga Street.

The plan is to move all of these outpatient programs onto the second floor of the hospital, called Soldiers’ 2. The benefit? A more cohesive team of social workers, paediatricians nurses, therapists and specialists all available to patients and each other in one area of the hospital. This is part of the hospital’s greater movement to “wrap care” around the patient.

A gift today will help ensure paediatric patients and their families can have all their care needs met in one place, at one time.

“I’ve been in a lot of NICUs over the last few months, and I can honestly say Orillia has the best one around. It strikes the perfect balance between privacy and a community feel. It might seem silly, but I can also run home and have a shower!”
