South Campus Hospital emergency room open

The long-awaited South Health Campus emergency department opened Jan. 14.

The emergency room deals with some cases that can’t be handled at Okotoks Urgent Care Department, but patient numbers haven’t dropped at the Okotoks Health and Wellness Centre since the emergency room in Calgary opened.

The hospital is located in the south Calgary in Auburn Bay and is staffed to handle up to 200 patients a day, with 70 registered nurses and nine paramedics on staff. There are between one to five doctors in the emergency room throughout the day and a pediatrician on from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day.
