Working with the Community for a Better Way

Monarch Centre’s newborn and maternal health-care model works hand-in-hand with community-based physicians and is uniquely focused on the first weeks of your baby’s life. It is our goal to provide the best start possible, with assessments that provide the foundation for continued good health.

  • We coordinate and collaborate with your hospital physician and your community physician in order to coordinate care and appropriate follow-up
  • When follow-up care has been established with your community health provider (OB, family doctor, paediatrician, nurse practitioner) you will be transitioned back to their care
  • Monarch links with community and institutional partners, e.g. medical specialists and consultants, local hospitals, Ottawa Public Health: Healthy Babies Healthy Children Program, parenting programs, community resources, mental health resources and home care

Monarch’s model is founded on establishing strong linkages and open communication with our community partners —for the best start possible.
