Emergency department closures announced at several locations

Emergency department closures have been announced at three locations in our region. 

The ER at the South Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre (CEC) in Parrsboro will be closed Sunday and Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. 

The emergency department at the All Saints Springhill CEC will be shut down from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday and Wednesday. 

In Pugwash, the ER at the North Cumberland CEC will be closed Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

The Nova Scotia Health Authority says these closures are due to a lack of physician coverage. 

Overnight coverage will be available as usual.
