About our Emergency Department

We were the first acute care hospital in Canada to make geriatrics a key strategic priority in emergency care. We offer older adult-friendly care initiatives and also provide a youth navigation program in the Emergency Department: 

  • Older adults are supported by Geriatric emergency management (GEM) nurses highly-trained in engaging patients to assess for potential mental health or cognitive challenges. This patient-centred approach includes supports such as arranging for resources and services in the community.
  • Maximizing aging using volunteer engagement (MAUVE) program initiates support for older adults. Specially-trained volunteers work closely with the care team to provide patients with companionship and functional support.
  • The Pathway to Peers program supports youth and young adult patients, ages 16 to 29 who come to the Emergency Department with mental health and addiction needs.
