Virtual Health is a patient-centered care model focused on connecting patients, families and providers, through the use of technology to promote wellness, specialty care and improved outcomes.
Sunny Hill Health Centre is pleased to offer patients and families the opportunity to attend some appointments virtually. In a virtual health visit you are able to see, hear and speak to your health care providers in the same way as an in-person visit, using technology.
