Hospital emergency department

There's just one local ER closure for this weekend.

The Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) says the South Cumberland Community Care Centre's emergency department will be closed from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Sunday.

The department in Parrsboro will also be closed during those hours from Monday to Wednesday and Saturday, February 8th.

The North Cumberland Memorial Hospital's emergency department in Pugwash is scheduled to close from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday and from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday and Friday of next week.

In Springhill, the All Saints Springhill Hospital's emergency department will be closed Thursday and Friday of next week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The NSHA says all of the closures are due to a lack of physician coverage.
