As COVID-19 continues to spread, and as our federal, provincial, and local officials share guidance on making decisions, we want to inform the healthcare community that HIROC is here for you.

While we have officially moved to a virtual office to do our part in flattening the curve, the HIROC service you are accustomed to will not change – operations will continue uninterrupted.

As the situation develops we will continue to communicate with you and update this page, ensuring you have accurate and relevant information.

Subscribers with questions may reach out to us at any time at riskmanagement@hiroc.com.
