Keeping ahead of COVID-19

As you are well aware, there is a global response to the COVID-19 epidemic and recently the Canadian Government has asked all of us to stay home, work remotely whenever possible, and make every effort to keep ourselves healthy as we strive to reduce the spread of the virus. Providence Hematology is committed to the health of our staff, our patients, and our communities and as such, we will be taking the necessary steps to keep everyone safe.
