Family doctors and paediatricians in the community can contact the hospital for a paediatric consult and directly refer a patient to the short stay unit. Patients can also be referred through the Charlotte & Lewis Steinberg Emergency. This process ensures timely assessment, treatment and testing in a child friendly space, with clinicians who specialize in paediatric care. Learn more about what to expect during your stay.
