Visitor guidelines: Markham Stouffville Hospital’s Emergency Department

We are experiencing increased ED volumes at Markham Stouffville Hospital during this challenging cold and flu season and are limiting visitors for the time being. Adults will be allowed one visitor and paediatric patients will be allowed two visitors to be with them for the duration of their stay. Learn more

The wait time clock below does not include the time you are waiting in line to be triaged. Due to rapidly changing demands in the Emergency Department, you may experience a much longer than expected wait.

If you are in need of serious medical attention, CALL 911 or go to your nearest Emergency Department.

NOTE: Our Emergency Departments at both Markham Stouffville Hospital and Uxbridge Hospital are not testing centres. Do not come to the Emergency Department for COVID-19 testing.
