Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare (MAHC) is responding to connectivity challenges related to the nationwide outage of the Rogers network and has pulled together an emergency command team to work through challenges associated with this infrastructure failure.
Most MAHC applications are not impacted. Some internal mobile phones with Rogers-based service are affected and MAHC continues working through solutions to mitigate any impacts.
Inpatients are reminded that their bedside hospital phone is free of charge for calling out to their family and receiving phone calls from their loved ones.
Primary contacts of patients who are affected by the Rogers outage are asked to contact the care unit to provide a contact number that is not impacted by the Rogers outage (i.e. a landline or alternate carrier cellular device.)
