The Patient and Family Health Information Centre at Halton Healthcare is a resource for patients, family and staff offering health information resources and the personalized information expertise of our staff Librarian. The partnership with iMD Health, Canada’s leading digital patient education platform gives access to over 68,000 pieces of trusted content (images, documents and videos), across 2,100 medical topics.
