The emergency room at the Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital’s Collaborative Emergency Centre will be closed for 12 hours on both Thursday and Friday.

The closures on both days run from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. due to lack of physician coverage.

Overnight coverage will continue as usual.

Anyone experiencing a medical emergency should always dial 911. Those with general medical questions can also call HealthLink 811, which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
