ER closure at Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital CEC

The emergency department at the Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital Collaborative Emergency Centre will be closed for part of the day Sunday.

The Nova Scotia Health Authority says the 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. closure is due to a lack of nursing coverage.

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

Patients with emergencies will be redirected to the Colchester East Hants Health Centre or the most appropriate emergency department for care during the closure.
