The Emergency Departments at UHN:
The UHN Emergency Departments are happy to see any and all patients, but please note the following:
Childbirth: UHN can't provide special obstetrics care. If you do attend one of our Emergency Departments, we may have to transfer you to another hospital to continue your care. The nearest hospital which provides this service is
Mount Sinai Hospital.
Children: UHN does not have any pediatricians on staff. While Toronto Western Hospital does see children, if a child requires admission or specialist care, they will need to be transferred to another hospital, generally the
Hospital for Sick Children.
Medical advice: We cannot offer medical advice over the phone. Telehealth Ontario is a free, confidential telephone service you can call to get health advice or general health information from a Registered Nurse.

Additional charges: Some services (e.g., Ambulance) and products (e.g., crutches or certain types of splints) are not covered by Ontario Health Insurance. You may be asked to pay for these services or to expect a bill in the mail. We will generally inform you about these costs and try to answer any questions you may have. If you have supplementary insurance or are not an Ontario resident, there may be further costs or possibilities for recovery of these charges. You may need to contact your health insurance provider for assistance.
