Emergency room

Welcome to the emergency room


Very high traffic in the emergency room

Because of this high traffic, our emergency services should be reserved for children who are seriously ill or injured.

We ask you to :

  • Visit the page Before going to the emergency room to view symptoms requiring a visit to the emergency department.
  • Go to a testing clinic if your child presents COVID-19 related symptoms but has a good general  condition.

If your child requires a visit to the emergency department, please note only one accompanying person is authorized due to our accomodation capacity.

The emergency room is a place where anyone with a health problem requiring urgent attention is provided, at all times, with quality health care services.


The emergency room is located on the 1st Floor, Block 3. Show on a map
