A new care space for reproductive infectious diseases
BC Children’s hospital and BC Women’s Hospital & Health Center have many available experts and resources to address reproductive infectious diseases (RID), affecting mothers and their infants. However, up until now these services were siloed in their respective hospitals. Mothers with RID delivered at BC Women’s and their infants born with congenital infections received their care at BC Children’s. Lead by Dr Chelse Elwood and with the help of the Joint Collaborative Committees (JCC)’s Health System Redesign (HSR) project, both the RID and Pediatric Infectious Disease programs are transitioning into one space – the Oak Tree Clinic (OTC).
