Coming to SHN

Arriving at the hospital

Call Ahead for Volunteer Assistance (CAVA)

Our Call Ahead for Volunteer Assistance (CAVA) is for anyone planning to visit SHN, but specifically geared towards those living with accessibility challenges. It provides a 24-hour answering service, which patients or loved ones can call the day before their scheduled appointment to “reserve” a volunteer who will meet them at their most convenient entrance. Patients are welcome, and encouraged, to contact the CAVA program at 416-438-2911 ext. 6846 or CAVA@shn.ca to reserve their volunteer.

Information Desks

When you arrive at SHN, there are Information Desks located at the entrances at each hospital. The desks are staffed by volunteers who can answer your questions and help you find your way.

Registration

The first thing to do when you arrive at the hospital as a patient is to check in at the admitting desk, where you will register and provide the information we need to begin taking care of you.

Hours of operation

  • Monday – Friday, 6 a.m. – 4 p.m.
  • Registrations on weekends and off hours are made in the emergency department.

Patient Demographic Data Collection

We ask because we care

In order to address access barriers and health disparities to improve health equity, it is important for us to know who we serve, what their needs are, and how we can improve. The Patient Demographic Data collection will help us understand and plan care we deliver for our patients.

Screening at entrances

Please be aware that as part of our safety measures, we will be screening everyone before entering our hospitals.

Visiting patients

At SHN, we are working to ensure a safe environment for everyone entering our hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic — while remaining committed to compassionate care for patients and families. We understand that visiting can contribute greatly to a patient’s quality of life and well-being.
