Letter: Dalron thanks those who helped open Clarion Hotel to ALC patients

Clarion Hotel will be able to accommodate up to 95 ALC patients
The Clarion Hotel will be able to accommodate up to 95 Health Sciences North ALC patients.

Dalron’s core purpose for the past 50 years has been to provide homes for the community of Sudbury. 

A home for you and your family, for your business, for the night, or for a meal.

Dalron, as owner of President Place Ltd. which is the the operator of Clarion Sudbury, is thankful today to partner with St. Joseph's Continuing Care Centre , St. Gabriel Villa, HSN, and Ontario Health North on a project to free up hospital beds at HSN. 

Clarion Sudbury and these organizations are partnering on a solution for ALC patients so that more beds are available at HSN. 

Because of this initiative, Sudbury’s COVID-19 patients are more likely to have an ideal setting at HSN to cope with their battle against the virus
There are many people to thank as this has been a significant project with many moving parts. Choice Hotels have been accommodating in relaxing terms of their franchise agreement to permit this alternate use. 

The City of Greater has also been supportive in waiving the Municipal Accommodations Tax that would otherwise be payable on the use of these rooms. 

There are many functional area experts from HSN, St. Joseph's Health Centre, and the North East LHIN that have conducted site visits and implemented action plans and protocols to achieve the safest location possible for ALC and Rehabilitation patients at Clarion and the staff of Clarion have been completely supportive of their work and ensuring it succeeds.

There are a few individuals deserving notable mention. 

A special thanks to Nadia Pilon, General Manager of the Clarion Hotel for her responsiveness in dealing with the myriad requests of HSN and St. Joe's in making this happen. 

And another big thank-you to Maureen McLelland of HSN, Jo-Anne Palkovits of St. Joseph's and Kate Fyfe of Ontario Health North for their leadership in navigating through the barriers and challenges to bring about this project.

Dalron remains open during this pandemic to fulfill its purpose; providing a safe home. 

We are doing our best to keep properties and people safe and finding home solutions for people and businesses on an essential basis, whether partnering on a large project like this or keeping up essential daily routines to keep our properties clean and safe.  

Ron Arnold
President of Dalron Group
