Hospital Appointments

We are doing everything necessary to ensure that our critical services are adequately delivered to our patients, residents and clients, and that our employees and physicians are safe. 
Patients who require emergency care and those with confirmed scheduled appointments, by phone or appointment letter, should proceed to the hospital.  
Patients whose health-care needs are identified by their physician as high priority will be contacted about their appointment time. 
We ask that patients not arrive more than 10 minutes before their scheduled appointment time, as waiting area space is limited. If patients have questions regarding their appointments or would like to inquire about rebooking, they should call the phone number on their appointment letter.
A listing of phone lines for appointments is available, under Contact Us
If you can not make your appointment
We remind patients of the importance of attending your health-care appointment once it has been recently re-confirmed. If you are unable to attend, please cancel your appointment with sufficient notice (at least 48 hours) so that your appointment time can be offered to another patient. 
Health Sciences Centre
To assist with physical distancing, as of June 30, patients can register by telephone for some appointments at the Health Sciences Centre in advance of arriving at the hospital.
Telephone registration provides an alternative way to register for appointments and offers a quicker way to check in upon arrival to the HSC. It is available Monday to Friday, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. by calling 709-777-0908 or toll free at 1-888-770-6339.
Telephone registration at the HSC is available for all appointments, except for medical imaging (X-ray, MRI, CT etc), blood collection, cancer care, day surgery (except women’s health), nuclear molecular medicine and women’s health outpatients.
To learn more, please see our public service announcement, Eastern Health Begins Telephone Registration for Some Appointments at HSC (PDF).
