Healthcare Social Media

Social media is more than a trend – it’s a new way of life and an integral part of the patient experience at CHEO. Social media allows CHEO to be more accessible as a hospital, increases transparency and interactions between the hospital and the community, and is an additional tool for us to reach out to families. In fact, CHEO continues to expand its number of Facebook and Twitter followers all the while gaining new viewers on our official You Tube channel. Indeed, our various social media platforms provide parents in the community with a trusted source of health information. With the safety and privacy of our patients always at the forefront, CHEO developed Social Media Terms of Use as well as useful information about privacy and social networking.
