Services to continue at Horizon’s The Moncton Hospital during COVID-19 outbreak

(MONCTON) Thursday, Oct. 8, 2020 -  Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic Horizon has taken measures in our facilities to reduce patient traffic and create a safe and healthy environment for our patients, clients, staff, physicians and communities.

As a result, services offered at Horizon's The Moncton Hospital will continue even with the current COVID-19 outbreak occurring in the Moncton area. Some services will be reduced.

Horizon will contact all patients and clients if their surgery or outpatient appointment is cancelled and will call those affected to reschedule when the situation allows.

If you have a scheduled appointment for surgery, outpatient (ambulatory care) clinics, diagnostic imaging, or blood work at Horizon's The Moncton Hospital, please attend your appointments as you normally would.

Please note that services offered at the Moncton Coliseum location will continue.

Beginning Oct. 7, visitor restrictions were reintroduced at Horizon's The Moncton Hospital to ensure the safety of our health care workers and the safety of our patients, clients and communities. There are no visitors allowed.
