NOTICE

The location of your appointment may have changed. Please ensure you have been in touch with your specialist before proceeding to the hospital.

To protect the safety of our patients, staff and physicians, we will be pre-screening all patients booked for urgent, in-person appointments for COVID-19 symptoms. You will receive a phone call from your specialist’s clinic 24 to 48 hours before your appointment. You will then be screened for symptoms again before entering St. Michael’s Hospital. After both screenings, you will be given a location for your appointment.

If you do not hear from your specialist within 24 to 48 hours before your appointment, please reach out to them directly.
