Beaverlodge Municipal Hospital ED without physician coverage on March 4th and 5th

AHS has announced the Beaverlodge Municipal Hospital Emergency Department will be without physician coverage from 8:00 a.m. March 4th to 8:00 a.m. March 5th.

AHS says nursing staff will remain on-site to provide triage, assessments, and referrals for patients to alternate emergency departments in surrounding communities.

In case of emergency, residents are asked to call 9-1-1 as EMS remains available, and will be re-routed to the Grande Prairie Regional Hospital. For non-emergencies residents are asked to call Health Link at 8-1-1, for 24/7 inquiries.

Additionally, patients seeking care at the ED are asked to remain aware that services could be available at local pharmacies depending on their needs.
