When every minute counts, it’s critical to have world class care close to home. Helping an average of 200 patients every day, Grand River’s emergency department is at the ready 24/7, 365 days per year, providing lifesaving and critical care when we need it most.

In 2021, midway through the third wave of the pandemic, Grand River Hospital scored so highly on provincial emergency service measurements, like wait time for care, that we received recognition as one of the top 10 emergency and critical care centres in Ontario. High praise that holds to light the incredible dedication, expertise and patient-centred focus of those who put the lives of others in front of their own, every single day. Not only did they provide urgently needed care for people without COVID-19, they worked tirelessly to give life-saving measures to hundreds who were, including many transferred to Grand River from much larger cities.

In March 2022, we granted $14,062 to the hospital for the greatest needs of Emergency & Critical Care.
