Emergency department closure in Tatamagouche on Wednesday

The emergency department at the Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital Collaborative Emergency Centre (CEC) in Tatamagouche will be temporarily closed Wednesday evening. 

The Nova Scotia Health Authority says the ER closure is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and is due to a lack of physician coverage. 

Overnight coverage from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. will be available as usual. 

Patients with emergencies will be redirected to the Colchester East Hants Health Centre.
