The temporary Emergency Department closure that was scheduled to end on Saturday October 29th at 8:00AM has been extended until Sunday October 30th at 7:30PM. The ongoing high volume of COVID cases and the capacity challenges of our aging facility have meant we continue having to repurpose non-traditional spaces to properly care for our patients and redeploy staff from other areas of the hospital to assist.
We anticipate the situation to stabilize over the next 24-48 hours allowing us to return to normal operations at which time we will be in position to reopen the Emergency Department. Patients requiring Emergency Care are advised to call 911 or to attend the closest hospital that offers emergency services:
- Northumberland Hills Hospital, 1000 DePalma Drive, Cobourg
- Quinte Healthcare Corporation – Trenton Memorial Hospital, 242 King Street, Trenton
- Quinte Healthcare Corporation – Belleville General Hospital, 265 Dundas Street East, Belleville
- Peterborough Regional Health Centre, 1 Hospital Drive, Peterborough.
