Valleyview Health Centre evacuated, closed until further notice

The final patients and staff have been evacuated from the Valleyview Health Centre, and the facility is now closed due to wildfire activity in the area.

Alberta Health Services says that at approximately 8 p.m. Monday, final patients and long-term care residents were evacuated from the facility and are being cared for in care facilities in the Edmonton and Calgary Zones.

Officials say they will continue to contact families to share patient and resident location information as quickly as possible. They add, staff and physicians have accompanied patients and residents to alternative sites to ensure care continuity wherever possible.

All appointments with laboratory services, diagnostic imaging, mental health and public health in Valleyview are also postponed.
