A memo has been sent to York Region doctors for help “to avoid a total collapse of the hospital system amid the third wave of COVID 19.”

The chief of staff at Mackenzie Health issued the urgent call on Monday for physicians to be ready to pitch in with additional duties.

Dr. Steven Jackson writes in the memo, “the current modelling predicts the ability to care for patients in a traditional way will not be able to keep up with demand in the coming weeks.”

He says the hospital is looking for creative and novel spaces to care for the expected load of critically ill patients, as well as creative models of physician care.

Similar calls have gone out to doctors in other hospital networks around the GTA in recent weeks, including William Osler Health System which serves west Etobicoke and Brampton.
