The Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance is expanding its hours of operation at its Assessment Centre at the Stratford Rotary Complex Monday.

Debra Wiseman is the Chief Nursing Executive.

“HPHA is working to increase the access to assessment centre appointments, allowing additional testing appointments to accommodate the volumes that we’re seeing as well as increasing opportunities for after school appointments for those families that we serve in our community,” said Wiseman.

The Assessment Centre will now be open form 915 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

And more people want to rule out COVID-19.

“As such, symptomatic individuals are now coming to the assessment centre to rule out COVID-19 and then they’ll see their family doctors to identify what exactly are they managing and how to deal with it,” added Wiseman.

More information about COVID testing can be found on the HPHA website.
