Ottawa area hospitals helping families connect for Mother’s Day

May 8, 2020

Mother’s Day is an important day to show our love and appreciation for the mothers and mother figures in our lives. This year, with the ongoing efforts to combat COVID-19, Mother’s Day will be unlike any other. 

As families prepare to celebrate Mother’s Day this Sunday, Ottawa area hospitals understand that loved ones would like a way to connect with their moms and grandmothers. 

This Mother’s Day, hospitals in Ottawa are working to ensure that families and loved ones will still be able to share messages of love and support with the mothers in their lives while maintaining visitor restrictions.

Mother'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 moms and mother figures for everything you do. Happy Mother’s Day on behalf of Ottawa area hospitals.
