The Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority will continue to recruit doctors to our region to keep emergency departments open. However, services in some emergency departments may be temporarily unavailable if a physician is not available on site.
If an emergency department is not accepting patients, you will see a lime green sign on the door. Please speak with staff inside who can help you identify your care options.
Monthly emergency department schedules will be posted online at ierha.ca (click “Care in your Hospital” and then “Emergency Department Schedules”) or you can call toll-free 1-866-267-5818 and listen to schedule options.
These schedules are current when posted but are subject to last minute changes as doctors may need to accompany patients on ambulance transfers to another hospital. In these cases, staff on site will direct you to your best care option. The Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause you and encourage you to always call 911 for critical emergencies.
