OSMH opens new Integrated Medicine and Rehab Services Unit

(April 26, 2017 – Orillia, ON)  Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH) officially cut the ribbon today opening the new Integrated Medicine and Rehab Services (IMRS) unit.

This change is part of a larger commitment to the redesign of care for patients that will focus on an inter professional model of wraparound care, enhancing the transitions between phases of care and the continuity of care provided by inpatient, outpatient and community teams working together. 

“This is an exciting day for our hospital and the patients and families who rely on us for care,” said Pat Campbell, President and CEO at OSMH. 

“It’s all about wrapping care around the patient in one location instead of moving patients to different areas of the hospital as they transition from the different phases of their care and recovery” said Campbell.      

The IMRS unit is located on the fourth floor of the hospital. 

“This new model of care is also in step with provincial direction outlined in the Rehab Care Alliance, Seniors Strategy and Patients First,” said Kari Simpson-Adams, Chief Nursing Executive and Senior Program Director - Local Patient Programs. “These changes will help OSMH achieve our vision of Excellent Compassionate Care…Every Day.”
