ER closures announced at three locations

Emergency department closures during daytime hours have been announced at three locations over the next week. 

The ER at the North Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre (CEC) in Pugwash will be closed from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday through to Wednesday. 

In Parrsboro, the emergency department at the South Cumberland CEC will be shut down Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. 

The ER at the All Saints Springhill CEC will be closed from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. 

The Nova Scotia Health Authority says these closures are due to a lack of physician coverage. 

Overnight coverage at each location will be available as usual.
