Emergency Services

The St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital provides a full service Emergency Department to meet the unscheduled and emergency needs of patients. Our hospital is one of the best performing hospitals in Ontario for ER wait times. With improvements to the waiting area, triage, and specialized zones where less urgent patients can be served, we provide faster service and improved care for our patients. With state of the art equipment and nurses and physicians with advanced skills in emergency medicine, the ER team at STEGH is here to make every journey through ER an excellent patient experience.

 We hope you never have to come to the ER but if you do…please bring a list of your current medications. Our team needs to know what medications you are taking and the dosage to provide the very best care for you.



The Emergency Department is available for service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


The Emergency Department is located on the ground floor of the hospital.
