NEW: Book a virtual Emergency Department visit

St. Michael’s Hospital is testing a new virtual Emergency Department service for the next six months (December 2020 to May 2021).

Virtual emergency visits are optional. The St. Michael’s Emergency Department is still available for walk-in visits if you need urgent care.

St. Michael’s Hospital and Emergency Department are safe places to receive care in-person. Learn more about the safety precautions we have in place.
