Emergency Services

The WRHA Emergency Program provides 24 hours per day, 7 days per week emergency services at six acute care hospitals (two tertiary and four community) and one Urgent Care Centre.

The Emergency program is responsible for assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of all emergent and urgent health care needs. Service is mainly provided to citizens of Winnipeg although residents in communities surrounding the city also access services. At the two tertiary hospitals (Health Sciences Centre and St. Boniface Hospital), patients are also seen from Northwestern Ontario, Northern Manitoba and Nunavut. Francophone services are available at St. Boniface Hospital.

The Emergency Program also provides services at times when other primary care services such as walk-in clinics or family doctors are not available. Many of these cases may be less-urgent or non-urgent. Some outpatient services such as I.V. therapy are also provided through the regional emergency program.

The members of the health care team within the emergency program generally include physicians, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, psychiatric nurses, support staff, home care nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and respiratory therapists.
