Pugwash ER will be open Monday after all

The emergency department at the North Cumberland Collaborative Emergency Centre in Pugwash will be open New Year's Day after all.

It was supposed to be closed from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. due to a lack of physician coverage.

But the Nova Scotia Health Authority said Sunday that it has secured physician coverage for the day.

Regular overnight coverage provided by the registered nurse and paramedic team will also be available as usual.
