    Ramp to KGH ER remains closed for repair work

    The access ramp for Kingston General Hospital’s Emergency Department will remain closed until Friday, Oct. 30 to allow ongoing repair work to be completed. During the closure, access to the emergency department will be temporarily moved to the Armstrong 1 entrance on Lower University Avenue.

    A plan is in place to ensure that patients are impacted as little as possible. Patient safety is primary consideration and the plan includes additional security, porter and volunteer resources to ensure that patients have clear access to the emergency department. All patients will be assessed once they arrive in the Emergency Department.

    To accommodate an increase in traffic in the area, Lower University Avenue has become a one-way street running from King Street West to Stuart Street. Any vehicles that do not need to access the emergency department are asked to avoid Lower University Avenue during this time.
