ER closure in Tatamagouche on Tuesday

The emergency department at Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital Collaborative Emergency Centre (CEC) in Tatamagouche will be temporarily closed during daytime hours Tuesday. 

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

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

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