Emergency and Urgent Care

Share This Page

Please note: Effective Thursday, January 6, at 11 p.m., the Urgent Care Centre at our Fort Erie Site is temporarily closed in order to redeploy our emergency-trained physicians and nurses to our Emergency Departments (ED) where they are most needed. Other services at the Fort Erie Site continue to be delivered. Learn more here

If you think you or a loved one is experiencing a medical emergency, call 9-1-1 right away or come to the nearest Emergency Department

Primary care should be your first point of care if you do not need emergency care. This includes family doctors’ offices, walk-in clinics, nurse practitioner clinics, community health centres and other healthcare options. Using any of these options can help you and your loved ones access the care you need on a timely basis and, whenever possible, avoid an unnecessary visit to the Emergency Department.

If you have a concern that cannot wait for a scheduled medical appointment, visit one of our Urgent Care Centres in Fort Erie or Port Colborne. You can also access urgent care without leaving home by visiting Urgent Care Ontario.

Emergency Departments provide 24-hour access to care for people experiencing trauma, serious injury or serious illness. Niagara Health operates Emergency Departments in Niagara Falls, St. Catharines and Welland.
