OTMH’s Nephrology Program receives Award of Merit


The Kidney Foundation of Canada (KFOC) presented Halton Healthcare’s Nephrology Program with the Award of Merit during the Kidney Foundation Awards Night on July 25, 2019.

In attendance to accept the award on behalf of the Nephrology Program were members of the team at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital (OTMH) including Rebecca Purdie, Social Worker, Maria Doyle, Registered Nurse and Manager, James Bellamy.

The Award of Merit is presented each year as recognition of a partnership between the Kidney Foundation and an organization. The Halton Healthcare Nephrology Program was acknowledged for their outstanding partnership, dedication and contribution to renal care in the region. OTMH has developed and maintained a positive relationship with the KFOC by engaging with the Kidney Foundation’s many programs and services offered.

“We are honoured and proud to accept this award,” said Gail Burns, Director of Nephrology at Halton Healthcare. “It has been our pleasure to partner with the Kidney Foundation and work toward ensuring the best care possible for our patients.”

With a focus on collaboration and innovation, the Nephrology Program is a leader for in-centre patient support programs and services offered to nephrology patients and their families at the Multi Care Kidney Clinic.

Multi Care Kidney Clinic

The Multi Care Kidney Clinic supports patients who have some level of kidney disease but do not presently require dialysis.

Our focus with these patients is education on kidney disease, lifestyle tips to help slow the progression of kidney disease, dietary support, assistance with medication management, and coping strategies. Our goal is to encourage patients to be active in their own healthcare and to optimize wellness. We have a full team of dedicated staff who work with patients on a 1:1 basis or in groups.
