Care We Provide
This service, which may be your first point of contact with Markham Stouffville Hospital, exists to provide initial treatment of serious illnesses and injuries, some of which may be life threatening and requiring immediate attention. After initial assessment and treatment, patients may be admitted to the hospital, transferred to a specialty hospital or discharged.
In order to ensure timely, quality care for the most serious conditions, we triage our incoming patients to determine the nature and severity of their condition.
At the Markham site we direct patients with minor or less urgent symptoms to our Green Zone.
For easy access to discharge instructions, patients at the Markham site can download the Dash MD application to their smartphone. Dash MD provides patients treatment-specific aftercare instructions, helps manage medications and follow up appointments, helps patients find community care resources, and provides an opportunity to submit feedback on their experience at the hospital.
During your visit you will be seen by a physician.
