The Collaborative Emergency Centre at Western Hospital will be closed the evening of July 1 due to a temporary lack of registered nurse coverage.

Anyone with emergency medical needs should call 911 or seek emergency services when:

· experiencing discomfort or tightness in the chest;

· experiencing unusual shortness of breath;

· experiencing abdominal pain;

· experiencing prolonged and persistent headache or dizziness;

· an injury may require stitches or involve a broken bone;

· a child has prolonged diarrhea or vomiting; or

· a baby under six months of age has a fever of 38°C (100.4°F) or higher.

If you have any health concerns or need immediate health information, call 811 to speak to an experienced registered nurse for advice on the best course of action.
