Emergency Department

If your situation is a life-threatening illness or injury, immediately phone 911.

For other health concerns, phone:

  • Your family doctor or
  • Health Link at 811 (a 24/7 service from a registered nurse)

Coming to the Emergency Department

Wait times may vary depending on the time of day, how busy the department is and if there are any emergencies at the time. Estimated wait times can be found on the Alberta Health Services Wait Times website

Patients in the Emergency Department are seen according to how sick they are, not on arrival time. There are different areas in emergency, so you may see people who have come after you go in before you, based on where they have to go.

If possible, please bring your provincial health care card, a list of current medication/health concerns and contact information for your doctor(s).

The Emergency Department is located on the East side of the hospital. You can also access the Emergency Department from the inside of the hospital. Look for signage throughout the hospital, or ask the admission/information desk located across from the front entrance.

The main parking lot can be accessed from 87 Ave. Public transportation is available with Edmonton transit stops on 87 Ave.
