Canada Post service disruption
There may be a Canada Post mail service disruption beginning as early as Monday, July 11. If it happens, KGH wants you to know what to do in case you are expecting mail from the hospital or if you were planning on mailing something to the hospital.
Expecting mail from the hospital?
- Clinic appointment information: If you are a patient, KGH is now working to book all future clinic appointments before you leave the hospital. If that is not possible, we will call you with the date and time of your next appointment. If you have any questions about an upcoming appointment, you can contact your doctor's office.
- Patient records: If you are a physician who receives patient care records through Canada Post please contact our Registration and Health Information Services Department to arrange for electronic delivery for the duration of the disruption at 613-549- 6666, extension 4655 or extension 3951.
- Payments: If you are a vendor expecting a payment from KGH you can sign up to receive payment via electronic funds transfer by filling in our EFT Authorization Form .
- Other time sensitive correspondence: If the documents you are expecting are time sensitive, KGH will work to make alternate arrangements for you to receive it. If it is not urgent, expect to receive this correspondence after any postal disruption.
Need to send something to the hospital?
- Payments: If you have received an invoice for hospital services, you are responsible for making bill payments on time during a postal disruption.
