If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911.

Southlake’s Emergency Department (ED) provides care to more than 112,000 patients each year, serving the Town of Newmarket, northern York Region and south Simcoe County 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Our ED has a dedicated team of healthcare professionals and volunteers to assist you with your care.

We know how difficult it may be to know when to visit our ED, as many illnesses and procedures can be treated at local walk-in health clinics. If you are ever in doubt, please go to your nearest ED.

The illnesses treated in the department range from minor to life-threatening, and patients are treated based on the severity of their illness.

If your needs are outside the scope of what Southlake can provide then you will be assessed, stabilized and transferred to a hospital that offers specialized care designed to meet your needs.
