AHS is working hard to ensure a physician fills the missing position so local residents can continue to have access to the care they need during this time.
The nursing staff will remain on-site in the ED helping the communities as much as they can.
Patients are asked to call 911 if they have a medical emergency. EMS will be re-routed to other healthcare centres so local residents can have access to the services they need.
More details will be shared later with adjusted hours to the local ED.
