Emergency department closures announced for Springhill and Cumberland 

There will be daytime emergency department closures at both the All Saints Springhill CEC Emergency Department and South Cumberland CEC Emergency Department over the next week. 

The Nova Scotia Health Authority says the All Saints Springhill CEC Emergency Department will be closed on the following dates: 
- Saturday, April 22nd from 8 a.m to 8 p.m.
- Sunday, April 23rd from 8 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
-  Friday, April 28th from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The Nova Scotia Health Authority also says the emergency department at the South Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre in Parrsboro will also be closed for most of next week, which includes Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. 

The health authority says the closures at both of these locations are necessary due to a lack of available physician coverage. 

Overnight coverage, from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. in Springhill and 8:30 p.m to 8:30 a.m. in Cumberland, will be available as usual.
