Out-Patient Specialty Clinics
Hanover & District Hospital hosts a number of out-patient specialized physician clinics. The physician or nurse practitioner (NP) will conduct their clinic, both with consults and procedures, allowing the community to be serviced closer to home rather than travelling to a larger center for this care. Each clinic is equipped with the required equipment specific to each specialty.
Volunteers and Nursing staff are available to clinics to assist patients to navigate the system with ease and comfort, providing direction and delivering care.
