Ambulatory Care

Ambulatory Care

“Ambulatory Care” consists of the whole range of health care services provided to clients who can come in for treatment and return home before the end of the day. Within the Restigouche Zone of the Vitalité Health Network, ambulatory care is provided at the Campbellton Regional Hospital, St. Joseph Community Health Centre, Addiction Services, and the Jacquet River Health Center. Various clinics and a whole range of health services are provided by appointment only, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., but often later depending on needs.

A team of registered nurses, in addition to a number of physicians, specialists, technicians and health professionals, provides services to the population.

Features

As part of the teleoncology cervical cancer screening project, the Ambulatory Care Department at the Campbellton Regional Hospital just acquired a brand new “Colpex” system that allows for the transfer of images elsewhere in the province or outside the province when consultations or referrals are required.

The Web 1000 software application is another acquisition that benefits the Campbellton Regional Hospital and St. Joseph Community Health Centre and makes it possible to view X-rays and CAT scans via computer.

Thanks to Virtual Interactive Telehealth Assistance Links (VITAL), clients from the Restigouche Zone of the Vitalité Health Network who have undergone heart surgery at the Heart Centre in Saint John can now have their post-surgery assessment done at the Campbellton Regional Hospital.
