A pair of emergency departments in Richmond Co. have upcoming closures planned.
Officials at the St. Anne Centre in Arichat say their ER is closing at 7 p.m. Thursday, and will reopen at 7 a.m. Friday.
Meanwhile, the ER at Strait Richmond Hospital in Evanston will be closed at 7 a.m. Sunday, before reopening at 8 a.m. Monday; another 25 hour closure is scheduled for Wednesday, July 4, when the department will be closing at 7 a.m. and remaining closed until 8 a.m. Thursday.
Health officials say nurse unavailability is the reason for all of the closures.
You can contact 911 or go to the nearest open ER if you have an emergency, or you can call 811 for non-emergency health advice from a registered nurse.
