Where to go for care this Civic Holiday weekend

Kingston Health Sciences Centre wishes you a safe and healthy Civic Holiday weekend.  Please note:

Our Pediatric Urgent Care (walk-in) Clinic at the HDH site is closed Monday, August 5.

FOR URGENT CARE:  Our Urgent Care Centre is located at our Hotel Dieu Hospital site (166 Brock Street).  It provides care for patients with injuries or illness that require urgent medical attention that cannot wait for a visit to a family physician. This could include deep cuts and wounds that require stitches, sprains and strains or deep bruises, mild to moderate asthma attacks, infections of the ear, respiratory system or urinary tract, severe diarrhea, insect bites or rashes. The Urgent Care Centre is open every day between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.

FOR EMERGENCY CARE:  The Emergency Department at our Kingston General Hospital site provides care for patients with life or limb-threatening illness or injuries or patients who have a high likelihood of requiring hospital admission. This could include severe bleeding, difficulty breathing, chest pain or pressure, trauma to the head, sudden dizziness or difficulty seeing and severe abdominal pain. The Emergency Department is open 24 hours-a-day.

Patients who are experiencing chest pain, severe respiratory distress, allergic reactions, or the symptoms of stroke (sudden onset of arm/leg weakness, facial droop or slurred speech) should call 911 immediately.

If you’re not sure where to go, Telehealth Ontario is available 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week and gives you access to a registered nurse who will assess symptoms and help decide what kind of help is needed and where to get it. Phone 1-866-797-0000.
