CEC pro­vides health care around the clock for Shau­navon


A so­lu­tion to Shau­navon’s long stand­ing doc­tor short­age was for­mally un­veiled on Nov. 28 when a grand of­fi­cial open­ing was held for the Col­lab­o­ra­tive Emer­gency Cen­tre in Shau­navon.

Op­er­at­ing as a pri­mary health care fa­cil­ity be­tween 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., seven days a week, a team of three fam­ily physi­cians along with a nurse prac­ti­tioner sched­ule ap­point­ments to de­liver health­care ser­vices.
