Urgent Care

The Emo Health Centre’s Urgent Care provides emergency care between the hours of 9:00am - 5:00pm, Monday to Friday, with fully qualified medical staff.

If you are in need of urgent medical attention outside of these hours please go to the Emergency Department at La Verendrye Hospital in Fort Frances or Rainy River Health Centre in Rainy River.

If you have a medical concern and are seeking advice please use the Telehealth Ontario line at 1-866-797-0000 where you will speak with a Registered Nurse. Do not call the Urgent Care department seeking advice. Due to legal reasons the Urgent Care department staff are unable to provide advice or information to you over the telephone.

Triage Process

Triage is the process of determining the priority of patients' treatments based on the severity of their condition. We follow the Canadian Triage Acuity Scale
