Etobicoke General Hospital
As of June 23, 2019, the Intensive Care Unit and the Cardiac Care Unit at Etobicoke General Hospital will be combined to form Critical Care. Critical Care can be found on Level 3 of the new patient tower. Please enter through the main entrance.
A Surgical Intermediate Care Unit (SIMCU)
Located at Brampton Civic Hospital. The SIMCU provides a level of care between what a patient would receive on a general patient care unit and the ICU.
Partnership with Trillium Health Partners in the West GTA Stroke Network
Osler has partnered with Trillium Health Partners (the Regional Stroke Centre) to ensure that anyone living in the area served by Osler who suffers a stroke will receive comprehensive stroke care. Depending on the condition and treatment needs, patients will either be cared for at Osler, or they will be re-directed to Trillium Health Partners for specific stroke treatment (e.g. endovascular therapy). If treatment at Trillium Health Partners is required, patients will be transferred back to one of Osler’s hospitals once stable, to continue their recovery.
24/7 Code STEMI program
Patients arriving with heart attacks arising from a blocked coronary artery bypass the Emergency Department at Brampton Civic Hospital and go straight to Osler’s cardiac catheterization lab.
At Etobicoke General Hospital, patients are immediately redirected to Brampton Civic Hospital for this care. Cardiologists use a balloon catheter and stent to quickly open the blocked artery.
