The Sun Country Health Region is telling people the emergency department at the Arcola Health Centre will not be in operation this weekend due to a lack of doctors.
Health Region CEO Marga Cugnet says they are working hard to recruit doctors to the area with two coming in the next month and that they understand the challenges this weekend will pose for the community.
Southeast residents should note that during the time the health centre services are unavailable, they should call 911 as usual for an ambulance. If they need to utilize an emergency department, they can travel to St. Joseph’s Hospital (Estevan); the Redvers Health Centre; the Galloway Health Centre (Oxbow); the Weyburn General Hospital or Kipling Integrated Health Centre.
The department will re-open Monday morning at 8 AM
