Emergency department closures announced for Parrsboro

A round of daytime emergency department closures have been announced for the South Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre in Parrsboro.  

The ER will be closed Friday and on several days next week, including Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. 

The Nova Soctia Health Authority says the shut down, which is from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., is due to a lack of physician coverage. 

Overnight coverage will be available as usual.
