ER closures announced at three Cumberland County facilities

The Nova Scotia Health Authority has announced another round of daytime emergency department closures for three Cumberland County facilities this week.

The All Saints Springhill Collaborative Emergency Centre (CEC) emergency department will be closed Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. each day.

The North Cumberland Memorial Hospital CEC in Pugwash is closed Monday during the same time.

In Parrsboro, the South Cumberland CEC emergency department is closed Thursday and Friday from 8:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m.

The health authority says a lack of physician coverage is behind the temporary shutdowns.
