Medical Emergencies

The Royal Victoria Hospital is located less than 20 minutes away by ambulance or by car, should you require emergency services.

For all major medical emergencies, yourself or the staff will call 911.


You are encouraged to retain your own family physician. Please provide the Housing Accommodations Office with a copy of your Advanced Directives in order for us to provide it to the ambulance attendants to send with you to the hospital if you become unwell.


There are NO Registered Nursing Staff at Heritage Place. In-home recuperative medical care can be arranged through the Community Care Access Centre. If you qualify, your medical care will be administered by visiting professionals from the community.


Lab Work

In addition to the Blood Lab Clinic held monthly on the 3rd floor at Heritage Place, you may arrange for a Life Labs technician to visit you in your apartment at Heritage Place to have routine blood work done as ordered by your physician. Life labs will bill you directly for this service. To arrange for an appointment call 1-877-849-3637.


B12 Clinic

A B12 clinic for injections is provided to the Residents once a month. Residents are responsible to bring their own B12 as prescribed by their own physician.
