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.
Just the second Collaborative Emergency Centre (CEC) in Saskatchewan behind one operating in Maidstone, Shaunavon’s CEC now has both the staff and the infrastructure to provide 24hour healthcare from their home at the Shaunavon Hospital and Care Centre.
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.
