The emergency department at the Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital Collaborative Emergency Centre will be closed overnight July 12.

 

The CEC will be closed beginning at 11 p.m., and re-open at 7 a.m. It is closed due to a lack of nursing coverage. Patients with emergencies will be redirected to the Colchester East Hants Health Centre or the most appropriate emergency department for care.

Those experiencing a medical emergency should always call 911. General health concerns can also be directed to HealthLink where advice and information are available around the clock by simply dialing 811. The Mental Health Crisis Line operates 24/7 at 1-888-429-8167.

Anyone who is unclear about the availability of services may also contact the hospital at 902-657-2382.
