Prince County Hospital
SUMMERSIDE â€“ Prince County Hospitalâ€™s electronic health records are getting an upgrade.
The province announced Friday that a new process, used to order diagnostic tests, order and chart medication and enter patient-care instructions, is being installed starting on Saturday and as a result patients might see longer than usual wait times.
Health P.E.I. is asking the public to be patient as hospital staff adapt to the new system.
To help handle any increased wait times at the hospital, Harbourside Health Centre will be operating on extended hours on some days for the next two weeks.
For non-urgent care, Islanders are encouraged to visit their family physicianâ€™s office or walk-in clinic.
Harbourside Health Centreâ€™s extended hours are as follows:
- June 1 and 2, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- June 3 to 5, 6 to 9 p.m.
- June 6, 7 to 9.m.
- June 8 and 9, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
