The Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is pleased to announce the creation of a Regional Hip and Knee Replacement Program.
This program seeks to improve access to timely assessment services for possible total joint replacement surgery in the Champlain LHIN, utilizing a regional central intake referral processing site and multi-disciplinary assessment teams based at four assessment centres: Cornwall Community Hospital, Hôpital Montfort, the Ottawa Hospital and the Queensway Carleton Hospital.
Beginning January 4, 2010, referrals will be sent directly to the regional central intake centre, rather than to individual orthopaedic surgeon offices. The referring physician and patient may choose services from a specific hospital, a specific surgeon or from the next available hospital/surgeon. All services are available in both English and French.
More information can be obtained by calling the Regional Central Intake Centre at 613-721-7890 or by visiting our website at www.ChamplainRHKRP.com. Additional referral forms can be obtained through our website. All referral forms should be faxed to
613-721-7889 beginning January 4, 2010.
