The Fairview Health Complex emergency department will be temporarily closed due to a lack of physician coverage from 7:00 a.m., Thursday, November 30th to 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 2nd.
Nurses will remain available in the emergency department to provide triage, assessments, and referrals for patients to alternate emergency departments in surrounding communities.
Residents are asked to call 911 in case of emergency and EMS will remain available to the community and will be re-routed to surrounding healthcare centres.
For non-emergencies residents are asked to call Health Link at 811, available 24/7.
The Fairview Health Complex says if coverage is found, disruptions may be cancelled.
