Summary: As of April 12, SickKids will be accepting paediatric inpatients from certain hospitals across the GTA to help increase health system

As of April 12, The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) will be accepting paediatric inpatients from certain hospitals across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) to help increase capacity in acute-care  hospitals, as directed by the GTA Hospital Incident Management System (IMS) Command Centre. 

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, SickKids has been working with regional hospital colleagues and system partners to prepare for and accept patient transfers to ensure the delivery of timely care. SickKids routinely accepts paediatric patients from other hospitals and is prepared to provide safe, high-quality care to additional paediatric patients, and to maintain stable hospital capacity for children and youth from across the GTA, with minimal impacts to clinical care and regular hospital operations. 

At this time, we are only admitting paediatric patients from certain hospitals in the GTA. SickKids is committed to providing ongoing support to GTA hospitals as the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to strain the health-care system.
