ER closure announced
NEW WATERFORD — The unavailability of physicians will mean several temporary closures of the emergency department at the New Waterford Consolidated Hospital.
The department will close Wednesday and remain closed until Thursday at 7 a.m. A second closure this week will begin on Friday and end at 7 a.m. on Saturday.
This emergency department is never open evenings, overnight or on Sunday and Monday.
If you have an emergency during any of these times, the Nova Scotia Health Authority advises you to call 911 or go to the nearest open emergency department.
For non-emergency health advice from a registered nurse, call 811. The provincial Mental Health Crisis Line operates 24 hours a day and seven days a week at 1-888429-8167.
