For Immediate Release
February 20, 2011

This afternoon, London Health Sciences Centre received a request from a Michigan hospital to review Baby Joseph Maraachli's medical information regarding the feasibility and appropriateness of a potential patient transfer. With the family's consent, we are sharing this information and working with the hospital to facilitate their information needs.

Our focus at this time is to work with the family on a patient care plan and to continue to provide compassionate and dignified care and comfort to Baby Joseph. Our priority is to ensure that all patients receive compassionate, dignified and respectful care.
