Have Fun

Use cookie cutters or cut shapes into sandwiches, fruit and other healthy food items. Special notes and stickers hidden in lunch boxes are great ‘treats’ rather than high fat or high sugar foods.

Temporary closure at Arcola Health Centre

Sun Country Health Region (SCHR) regrets to announce the temporary closure of the Emergency Department at Arcola Health Centre due to lack of physician services.  

The closure will be in effect from 5 p.m. on Friday, May 6 to 8 a.m. on Monday May 9, 2016.  

“We regret this announcement. We have not been faced with a temporary closure in this community for some time and intended to avoid another,” says Marga Cugnet, CEO, SCHR.  

“We understand the challenges this poses for the community. We are working hard to recruit new physicians to the area. Two new physicians will arrive in the next month and another two candidates will enter the Saskatchewan program for out of country doctors in September.”  

Residents should note that during the time the health centre services are unavailable, they should call 911 as usual for an ambulance. If they drive to an emergency department, they can travel to St. Joseph’s Hospital, Estevan; Redvers Health Centre; Galloway Health Centre, Oxbow; Weyburn General Hospital or Kipling Integrated Health Centre. 

Health care information is also available by calling 811 for a nurse on Healthline or visiting online at www.healthlineonline.ca
