From our location in St. Joseph’s General Hospital, CHS Elliot Lake serves people living in the Algoma District including the city of Elliot Lake, Blind River, Iron Bridge, Spanish, Thessalon, and the North Shore (Algoma Mills, Spragge and Serpent River).

Staff can also make referrals to regional audiologists as required.
