Emergency Department Redevelopment Project
The new Emergency Department at St. Boniface Hospital has been designed to improve patient and staff experiences and ensure timelier access to care, while maximizing functionality and flexibility and providing expanded space for more patients.

Entering the hospital
St. Boniface Hospital is still fully open and accessible for all services. However, given the ongoing construction of our new Emergency Department, how you enter our facility is changing.
Here are some things to note for your next visit:
- The hospital’s South Entrance – located at the south end of the main hospital, just west of the Emergency entrance – is currently closed to patients and visitors. It is scheduled to reopen in 2023. In the meantime, patients and visitors must use the Main Atrium entrance at 409 Taché Ave, where there is around-the-clock security presence seven days a week.
- Only emergency patients and their support people are permitted to enter via the Emergency Department entrance. Pick-ups and drop-offs of emergency patients are permitted in the emergency lot, but no other traffic is permitted.
- The size of the south parking lot outside the South Entrance has been reduced, but remains available to the public.
- In addition, there is public parking in the hospital parkade and its associated surface lots to the east of Taché Ave.
- Additional public parking is available in the north lot near the Main Atrium Entrance.
- Limited metered public parking is available outside the West Block buildings – the Asper Institute, McEwen Centre, Sakharov MRI Facility and Albrechtsen Research Centre.
- Patients and visitors may also find parking in the surrounding neighbourhood, either in private lots or on the street.
We thank all visitors to the hospital for their understanding and patience during construction of our new Emergency Department, which is expected to stretch into the fall of 2025.
