The Paediatric Short Stay Unit at North York General Hospital provides young patients timely access to care for up to eight hours. The most common referrals to the unit are for respiratory infections, jaundice, asthma and gastroenteritis.
Family doctors and paediatricians in the community can contact the hospital for a paediatric consult and directly refer a patient to the short stay unit. Patients can also be referred through the Charlotte & Lewis Steinberg Emergency. This process ensures timely assessment, treatment and testing in a child friendly space, with clinicians who specialize in paediatric care.
Hours: Open 7 days a week from 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
