Our modern facilities in the Charlotte & Lewis Steinberg Emergency at 4001 Leslie Street, Toronto, feature four distinct treatment areas:
- Acute care
- Subacute care
- Ambulatory care
Our facilities also include
- 18 negative pressure rooms out of a total of 45 rooms
A negative pressure room is totally enclosed and is separately ventilated to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases. These physical upgrades give us the capacity to effectively and safely handle many people in our Emergency who are showing signs of an infectious disease.
All patients report to the Triage Reception Desk
when they arrive at the Emergency Department (ED).

Operating room in the Charlotte & Lewis Steinberg Emergency
This area has 17 cubicles to care for patients with urgent injuries and illnesses such as broken hips, asthma attacks, abdominal pain and mental health concerns. There are also four specially designed paediatric treatment rooms that are child friendly and equipped with flat screen TVs with DVDs, Nintendo and age specific toys. All of these enhancements assist in lessening the fears of children and their families while they wait.
Our Yellow Zone is a designated area within the Subacute Care that allows for many of our patients to be assessed, have diagnosed tests performed and receive results with efficient patient flow.
The ambulatory care area provides treatment to patients with less acute illness or injuries and lacerations.
