PKey Area
Emergency Department
A reminder to residents that the Emergency/Out-Patient Department is open daily (including weekends and statutory holidays) between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. A Physician is on-call for emergency services.

Please note that residents requiring access to Emergency Services after 8:00 p.m. are reminded to attend Fort Saskatchewan Health Centre, St. Joseph’s General Hospital (Vegreville) or another community hospital which offers 24-hour Out-Patient/Emergency Services.

Notwithstanding the above, if you or an Ambulance should visit the Emergency Department after 8:00 p.m. because of a life-threatening emergency, a Nurse will assess your condition and will provide advice about treatment options, or request the presence of the Physician on-call for immediate treatment if required and deemed necessary.

Emergency departments:
• take care of people that are very sick or injured on a priority basis. This means the sickest people are seen first. If you go to an emergency department for care that isn’t urgent, you will not likely be seen right away.
• provide medical care, which includes assessment and treatment
• stabilize people and get them ready to transport to a higher level of care facility (if needed)
• provide follow-up care including referrals to a family doctor or specialist (if needed)


Ambulance and other emergency vehicle traffic can access the Emergency Department on the West side of the Main Entrance via 52nd Avenue and North on 54th Street.


Coming to the Emergency Department

Emergency is not a first-come, first-serve system. Critical ill patients are attended to first.

Waiting times may vary considerably depending on the time of day, how busy the department is and if there are any emergencies at the time.

Emergency departments help people with their emergency health needs 24/7. Health problems are assessed, diagnosed, and treated.

Treatments vary from minor to life-saving measures.

If you have an emergency, call 911.


The Emergency Department is also utilized as an Outpatient/ Ambulatory Care Department. This may include dressing changes, follow up to surgical procedures, minor excisions, intravenous therapy or treatments, etc. A reminder though is that this department operates on an emergent basis and emergency visits will take priority. The nurse will assess patients on that basis, continue to monitor and determine the priority of each case.

A Physician is on call 24 hours per day for any concerns; the Registered Nurse on duty can call on this Physician at any time. A patient is assessed daily by his or her Physician or the Physician on call.
