In the event of serious illness or injury requiring urgent attention, you should visit the nearest emergency department immediately. In Lethbridge, the 24-hour emergency department is located at:
Chinook Regional Hospital
960 19th St South
When visiting an emergency room, patients are seen to on a priority basis; this means that the people who require the most immediate medical attention will be seen first. If you visit an emergency department for care that is not urgent, you may have to wait—sometimes up to several hours. Prior to visiting the emergency department, if you would like to view estimated wait times, look here.
Call 911 if you require an ambulance. If you do not have appropriate coverage (such as through the ULSU Health and Dental Plan) you may be billed for the cost of the ambulance ride.
