As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, some services at the Porcupine Health Unit are being scaled back to allow us to commit more resources to the response plan, and to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.
The Porcupine Health Unit is currently employing their business continuity plan. Most in-person events, classes, home visits and community meetings are being cancelled, postponed or provided online until further notice. Please visit our Programs and Services page or call 1-800-461-1818 if you have any concerns or need further clarification.
As of October 1, 2022, the Porcupine Health Unit (PHU) will no longer be offering the Speech and Language Program (SLP) and the Infant Hearing Program (IHP). Services offered under both programs will be transferred to the Cochrane Temiskaming Children’s Treatment Center (CT CTC).
