Please be aware that Middlesex Hospital Alliance  is not a COVID testing center. If you require a COVID test and are not symptomatic or had a positive rapid antigen test, please schedule an appointment at your nearest Testing Centre.

Our Emergency departments are seeing higher volumes of patients and we are working hard to prioritize patient’s needing Emergency Medical Care.

Patients with less urgent conditions will experience longer wait times.  Thank you for your understanding,  patience and kindness.

If your condition doesn’t require urgent care, there are several options:

Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000, pharmacist, family doctor, virtual care or a walk-in clinic.
