Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA)

The emergency department in Springhill will be closed during daytime hours on Tuesday.

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

The department at the All Saints Springhill Collaborative Emergency Centre was closed during daytime hours Sunday and Monday, and is also scheduled to be closed during the same time on Thursday and Friday.

The health authority says the emergency department will be open during overnight hours.
