B.C. launches interdisciplinary COVID-19 Care Network with three dedicated clinics

VANCOUVER, JANUARY 22, 2021
British Columbians who are recovering from COVID-19 now have access to three post-COVID-19 recovery clinics at St. Paul’s Hospital (SPH), Vancouver General Hospital (VGH), and the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre in Surrey.

In addition to the direct care provided to patients, the Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) has provincial oversight for coordination and for integrating knowledge and best practice at the clinics through a new Interdisciplinary COVID-19 Care Network (ICCN).

Minister of Health Adrian Dix says, “We know some people who recover from COVID-19 experience long-term health effects. Through the dedication of a large team of experts and health leaders across the province, we are working to ensure that specialized care is available to British Columbians, when they need it.” READ MORE.
