Access WGH Emergency Department from main hospital entrance

Due to construction on the new Mental Wellness Unit, the emergency entrance is temporarily closed. Patients and visitors must use the main hospital entrance and follow floor signage on your route to the Emergency Department.

As this entrance will become busier, we ask anyone with booked appointments to allow extra time when visiting WGH during this time.

The emergency entrance will be closed until late spring 2024.

Important information about coming to hospital

Yukoners coming to WGH (in particular) can anticipate some delays and longer wait times than you’re used to. This will have an impact on any patient/client coming for walk-in services (such as lab and X-ray), some scheduled appointments, and more urgent needs.
