There will be no physician on site in the emergency department at the Central Peace Health Complex Emergency Department beginning 11:30 a.m., Friday, Nov. 10 – 10 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 11.
This temporary disruption is due to lack of unexpected physician availability and an inability to secure locum coverage.
Patients are asked to call 911 if they have a medical emergency. EMS will remain available to the community and will be re-routed to surrounding healthcare centres.
Nursing staff will remain on-site in the emergency department providing triage, assessments and referrals for patients to alternate emergency departments in surrounding communities, as needed.
Residents are reminded to call Health Link at 811, which is available 24/7 for non-emergency health-related questions.
