The Nova Scotia Health Authority announced a pair of temporary closures of the Strait Richmond Hospital’s ER.
The first will see the ER close at 7 a.m. on April 20 and re-open at 8 a.m. on April 22. It will close again at 7 a.m. on April 24 and re-open at 8 a.m. on April 25. The authority said the reason for the closures is a lack of physician coverage.
Anyone with urgent medical needs is asked to call 911 and those requiring non-urgent care are asked to call their family doctor.
To speak with a registered nurse, call 811. The provincial Mental Health Crisis Line can also be reached 24/7 at 1-888-429-8167.
