Shelburne: ER Closures At Roseway Hospital

Some local residents could be forced to go to a different hospital over the Victoria Day long weekend. The emergency department at Roseway Hospital in Shelburne will be closed beginning at 7pm on Saturday. Emergency services will be available beginning at 8am Sunday morning. Meanwhile, a doctor will be available on Monday. The closure was caused by unexpected unavailability of a physician. Shelburne area residents requiring emergency services should visit the nearest open emergency department or collaborative health centre. The public is reminded to dial 911 in the case of a health emergency or 811 to speak to a registered nurse.
