Alberta Health Services - Public Service Announcement      April 16, 2020

Emergency Department at Devon General Hospital to temporarily close during COVID-19 pandemic
Emergency patients to be diverted to other Edmonton Zone hospitals

EDMONTON – Effective 7 a.m., Monday, April 20, 2020, the Emergency Department at the Devon General Hospital will be closed and no longer accepting patients.

This temporary closure will help protect the 14 long-term-care residents at the DGH, who are at heightened risk for severe illness if exposed to COVID-19. As well, 10 additional acute care beds at the DGH will be converted to long-term care beds at this time, providing additional temporary long-term care capacity within the Edmonton Zone.

The ED closure and bed conversion will remain in place for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Individuals who would normally seek emergency care at the DGH are advised to instead visit the Leduc Community Hospital, WestView Health Centre in Stony Plain, or the Misericordia Community Hospital in west Edmonton.

As always, all patients requiring immediate medical care should phone 911.

Individuals requiring non-emergency medical care continue to be encouraged to call their family physician. To speak to a nurse and receive telephone advice and health information, families can also contact Health Link 24/7 by dialing 811
