We want you to be comfortable and to stay connected to your friends and family while in the hospital. Three services are available to help you stay in touch.


Each patient room is equipped with a phone that can be used for local calling. You will need to bring a long-distance calling card in order to call to communities outside of Whitehorse.


Each patient room has a television with free access to several TV stations.


Yukon's hospitals have wireless Internet service available for all patients and visitors. You can connect to the Internet from any wireless-enabled mobile device or computer by selecting the guest Wi-Fi from the list of available networks and accepting the terms and conditions. The service is made possible thanks to the Yukon Hospital FoundationNorthwestel and Yukon Government’s Community Development Fund.
