Important message for visitors: What to know before coming to the Heart Institute

March 16, 2020

Please note the following before coming to the Heart Institute for a visit:

As of Monday, March 16, 2020, the University of Ottawa Heart Institute is restricting all visitors in relation to COVID-19. This effort is essential to ensure the health and safety of our patients, visitors, staff, and our community at large.

In the event you arrive at the Heart Institute, you will be screened and it is very likely you will not be allowed in to visit.

If you are concerned about the status of a patient, you can call them directly or you can contact us at (613)-696-7000 and ask to speak to the manager of the unit where the patient is located.

We thank you in advance for your understanding, patience, and cooperation.

Please visit the Ottawa Public Health website for up-to-date information about COVID-19.
