Excellent Care for All

Change in Action - Emergency, Ambulatory and Acute Care

Emergency Care

Too many patients still rely on emergency room (ER) visits instead of accessing the primary care they need. Thousands of patients end up in ER each year in Ontario and are admitted for conditions that could have been better managed in primary care settings. The province is committed to support initiatives that reduce avoidable ER visits, improve the efficiency of ERs and reduce wait times.
