​Providence’s remaining community dialysis units (CDUs) – Richmond, Squamish and qathet (formerly Powell River General Hospital) – will be brought onboard after Cycle 7.

CST Cerner first went live at Providence Health Care on November 16, 2019, and immediately proved valuable in supporting our COVID-19 response. Subsequent sites and clinics started up in late 2020 and continued throughout 2021 to bring Providence’s remaining acute, long-term care and ambulatory clinics onboard. This latest Cycle 7 go-live will support seamless, safe and consistent care across the organization, as well as with live sites at PHSA and VCH.

Providence will have enhanced connectivity with Vancouver General Hospital when they go live this fall, joining other major sites such as BC Children’s Hospital and BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre, BC Cancer – Vancouver, BCMHSUS Red Fish Healing Centre for Mental Health & Addiction​ and Coastal hospitals including Lions Gate, Squamish, Pemberton, Whistler and Sechelt. We will also be better equipped to provide virtual care, and have access to better data to support operational decisions, which has made CST Cerner a game changer for live sites during COVID-19. ​

Thank you to staff and medical staff in these areas as training and preparations get underway. We look forward to welcoming you on October 3!
