SHHA Launches New Service
September 08, 2021
South Huron Hospital Association (SHHA) is enhancing
patient-centred care, by offering a new service to our community. On the
suggestion of the staff in the Diagnostic and Imaging Department, SHHA will
be offering Enhanced First Trimester Screening (eFTS) on Thursdays
effective September 16, 2021. Enhanced First Trimester
Screening requires nuchal translucency (NT) ultrasound and a blood sample.
SHHA will be coordinating outpatient blood work though our on-site
laboratory department following the eFTS ultrasound to ensure our
patients have access to care all in one place, and during
the same visit. SHHA Chief Nursing Executive, Michelle Wick, is
asking healthcare providers to consider referring their patients who may
otherwise have difficulty accessing care due to lack
of transportation or other determinants of health.
