In February 2021, St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, London Health Sciences Centre and Hamilton Health Sciences Centre partnered together to offer virtual urgent care services through www.urgentcareontario.ca. We offer urgent online medical care services to adults, children and residents of long-term care across Southwestern Ontario.
- Children’s Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre – provides virtual urgent care for children/youth
- Hamilton Health Sciences – provides virtual acute care consultations for long-term residents (currently Hamilton and Niagara North West)
- Niagara Health – provides virtual urgent care for adults in Niagara region
- St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton – provides virtual urgent care for adults in Southwestern Ontario, with the exception of those in Niagara region
The www.urgentcareontario.ca initiative received provincial funding to enhance the pandemic response through appropriate virtual care options, which are key in ensuring continuity of health services while preventing the spread of COVID-19.
