Dan spent 16-20 hours per week at @CHEO over the past 2½ years. Thanks to @MonCepeo teacher Micheline Zanth, he was able to complete his high school education and graduate while in treatment. So, today, everyone in the Medical Day Unit dressed up and threw him a grad party. ❤️

Parents: rest assured there's no shortage of *regular* infant formula in Canada. If your baby doesn't need *specialized* #infantformula, please avoid buying it so the supply can be used for babies with allergies and medical conditions who rely on it:

We just wanted to give you a sense of why waits are longer now than anyone would like and why you may want to explore other options. Thanks for your support and understanding. *end*
Our frontline folks are always here for you. That hasn’t changed in 48 years and never will. Again, if you need to come to CHEO, please do. +
If you have a family doctor or nearby clinic, a call there might save you hours’ long waits at hospital. If you do need to come to CHEO, our staff and medical staff will do everything in their power to get the world-class, timely care you deserve. +
Here’s where you can help: check this page to see whether your child’s condition requires a trip to hospital and to find other alternatives in the community:… +
We’re doing everything we can to manage volumes and staffing challenges, while minimizing inconvenience to you and your family. +
Obviously, we don’t do this lightly. It pains us to do. But that is the reality. We simply have more people needing care right now than we have space, beds, and people. +
That created a gridlock effect. It meant patients and families coming to emergency but didn’t need immediate care had to wait hours longer. It also meant we had to cancel some planned procedures for the coming week and reschedule others to make space. +
Our emergency department just had its busiest May ever and is on-pace to set a record for June. Yesterday, for the first time anyone can recall, we had *16* patients who were admitted that didn’t have a bed to go to. So, they stayed in ‘emerg.’ Some for almost 48 hours. +
Over the last six weeks, our in-patient medical wards have been packed. Again, with more young people than normal who are sicker than normal. COVID, flu, surgeries, and many other causes – all that are keeping kids in hospital for overnight stays. +
Since Friday, we have had more young people than normal for this time of year come to us with viruses, trauma, and injuries that are more severe than normal. Broken bones, head injuries, etc: ailments that require admissions to hospital. But we don’t have any free beds. +
This has been a spring weekend like no other in CHEO’s 48-year history. A 🧵on why a visit to CHEO right now might feel a bit different. +G
Even if you missed the live broadcast, there's still time to make a #CHEOTelethon difference! Head to to be inspired by this year's stories and donate if you can. Every gift counts.
It's official: today is @cheobbq day! In celebration of 30 years of supporting #CHEO kids it was declared that June 11, 2022 is CHEO BBQ Day in @ottawacity! 💫 We feel so lucky to have such a supportive community and we are so excited to see everyone's#GrillSkillss today! �J7
