Ottawa area hospitals helping families connect for Father’s Day

June 19, 2020

OTTAWA - June 19, 2020 - With the ongoing efforts to combat COVID-19 through physical distancing, this Father’s Day will be unlike any other. Many families will be looking for ways to show their love and appreciation for the fathers and father figures in our lives from a distance that helps keep everyone safe.

This Father’s Day, hospitals in Ottawa are ensuring that families and loved ones can share messages of love and support with fathers, grandfathers, and father figures on this special day while still maintaining visitor restrictions. 

Father’s Day gifts are welcome at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. Those who wish to give a gift to a patient must first contact the manager of the unit where the patient is located at 613-696-7000 to confirm what items are acceptable. Gifts can then be dropped off at the front entrance (40 Ruskin Street) in a bag labelled with the loved one’s name.

Thank you to all the fathers and father figures for everything you do! Happy Father’s Day on behalf of Ottawa area hospitals.
