This transition will enable JBH to redirect healthcare workers currently working in the Centre to support hospital operations.

While COVID-19 testing and assessment services will continue at the existing location in the hospital (1230 North Shore Boulevard), there will be a new process for the public to book appointments. Individuals with appointments booked on or after November 25 will be contacted to confirm their appointment in the new booking system.

To make an appointment at the COVID-19 Testing Site at Joseph Brant Hospital:

  • Book online: com/JBH
  • Book by phone through the FH Health booking line: 437-826-2118

Before making an appointment, please review the most up-to-date provincial criteria to determine if you are eligible to be tested. Note that the Testing Site is unable to offer testing for travel outside of Canada.

Unvaccinated surgical patients will not be tested at the COVID-19 Testing Site. Testing will be conducted in the pre-op clinic 72 hours prior to their surgery, if required.

The COVID-19 Testing Site at Joseph Brant Hospital will continue to operate seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The site will be closed from December 25-26, 2021, and on January 1, 2022. A variety of COVID-19 testing types will be available to eligible residents who are age 2 months and over, including nasal and throat swabbing.

The Testing Site is accessible on hospital grounds in the North Tower, adjacent to North Shore Boulevard and Maple Avenue. Use the parking lot off North Shore Boulevard, follow posted signage to the rear of the lot and park in a designated testing site space.

To access testing results and related inquiries, please contact FH Health directly via the chat feature on their website at or e-mail Testing results may also be retrieved through the Ontario COVID-19 testing portal.

Anyone who is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and is very ill or in need of immediate care should go to the nearest Emergency Department or call 911.

We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the JBH staff and physicians who made the Centre such a success, and to all the community members who have supported our hospital throughout the pandemic.
