We are into the third day of May, and already experiencing our second temporary disruption of services at the Shaunavon Hospital and Care Center.
Tonight from five p.m. Until eight a.m. Tomorrow morning there will be no emergency outpatient services or inpatient admissions available at the hospital due to the unavailability of an on call physician.
Shaunavon and area municipalities are working with the Cypress Health Region to recruit new physicians to Shauanvon since losing one of our two doctors the middle of April.
The Health Region has announced that these disruptions of services will continue throughout May each Tuesday and Thursday overnight until a locum doctor is able to come and cover starting in June.
Area residents are encouraged to dial 9-1-1 in a medical emergency.
