    As long as we have room space we prioritize bringing same day  sick add-ons to clinic.  This includes sickle cell, oncology and other heme disorders.  Most of the time, we can accommodate.  If not, we send them to the ED.

    We are the same as St. Joseph’s…the attempt to see the patient in our clinic/day hospital is made if during the daytime hours (Saturdays and Sundays too) if the volume/acuity is not already too high.
