AHS has about 1,200 emergency department care spaces across the province. Of those, 98.0 per cent are open and available.

This map illustrates AHS sites across the province that have, for a limited time, temporarily reduced beds and care spaces. We have also included historical bed occupancy numbers in the pop-up box for each site. Click on the yellow markers on the map for more details.

AHS makes every effort to secure staff and physician coverage before taking steps to reduce the number of beds and/or care spaces in any of our facilities. Temporary reductions are only done as a last resort.

Summer reductions occur annually due to staff and physician vacations, scheduled upgrades and construction projects in order to enhance patient and family experiences. AHS plans and prepares for bed reductions to minimize impact on patients, staff, and physicians.
