- Upon arriving at the Emergency Department, please use the intercom to gain entry.
- Have your Health Card ready.
- Upon entering the Emergency Department Lobby, pick up the phone on the wall straight ahead of you.
- Dial extension 2929. You will be connected with a staff member who will take your information and register you over the phone.
- Have a seat in the Waiting Room until Nursing Staff takes you to the Emergency Department. If your condition changes while you are waiting, please notify staff.
