Planned Power Outage At Fishermen's Memorial Hospital

A temporary power outage is planned for this coming Saturday morning at Fishermen's Memorial Hospital in Lunenburg. It'll happen between 7am and noon. The outage will force the emergency department to close and visitation at Fishermen's will be restricted. South Shore Health says the power outage is necessary to complete a critical upgrade to the electrical system and the power should be restored by noon. The health authority advises anyone requiring emergency services to call 911 or visit South Shore Regional Hospital in Bridgewater or Queens General Hospital in Liverpool. Patients with non-emergencies should contact Health Link 811 for medical advice.
