The Milk River emergency room will be closed overnight because of a lack of physician coverage. It will close at 7 p.m. on Nov. 30 and Alberta Health Services says it is anticipated to open again at 7 a.m. on Dec. 1.
“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.”
Emergency calls will be rerouted to Lethbridge and Raymond during the closure.
