The RSON team was recently in Hazelton to talk with care providers, administrators and patients about access to surgical services as part of the ongoing community-based evaluation of RSON. It was a delight to work with care providers, administrators and patients as part of the RSON evaluation in Smithers this fall. RSON funding is dedicated to serving the health care needs of outlying communities as close to home as possible. Below are some snapshots from our field visit!
Hazelton has recently introduced a contract model for midwives to provide maternity care for the region and supports visiting specialists for low-acuity procedures in the local OR. The RSON team is working to sustain these valuable services for the community. The RSON evaluation team was delighted to meet with providers and administrators at Wrinch Memorial Hospital in November.
