Emergency department closure in Springhill

The emergency department at the All Saints Springhill Collaborative Emergency Centre will be closed during daytime hours Sunday.

The Nova Scotia Health Authority says the 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. closure is necessary because no physician coverage is available.

Overnight coverage provided by the registered nurse / oversight physician team will be available as usual.

Anyone experiencing a medical emergency should always call 911, while general health concerns can also be directed to HealthLink 811.
