The Milk River Health Centre Emergency Department will be closed for the weekend because of a lack of physician coverage. Alberta Health Services says it will close at 5 p.m. on June 2 and will reopen on June 6 at 5 p.m.
“During the temporary closure, nursing staff will remain on-site to provide care for long-term care residents,” reads a news release from AHS. “AHS is working hard to ensure local residents continue to have access to the care they need during this time.”
During the closure, emergency calls will be rerouted to Lethbridge and Raymond.
