COVID-19 Update

St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton is beginning to reintroduce surgical and outpatient services slowly using a gradual, phased approach.  Some individuals, based on the severity of their condition and care needs, are being scheduled for procedures and treatments.

If you are a patient, your care team will contact you with more information when you are rebooked or booked for your treatment.

If you have concerns, please call your family physician. If there is an emergency, please call 911 and go the hospital immediately. If you have an urgent issue, please go to an urgent care centre. If this is a mental health emergency, call 9-1-1, the Crisis Outreach and Support Team (COAST) at 905.972.8338 or online at; go to your nearest hospital Emergency Department. St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton has Emergency Psychiatry Services at 50 Charlton Avenue East, Hamilton.

We are doing our best to serve all patients as quickly as possible, while ensuring the safety of our staff, patients and community. Thank you for your continued patience.
