Galloway Health Centre

Sun Country Regional Health Authority regretfully announces a reduction of services at Galloway Health Centre.

Due to a shortage of professional nursing staff, observation and assessment services at the centre will be suspended and emergency department services will be limited to only 12 hours a day.

The changes will take effect on Saturday, September 27, 2008 at 8 p.m.

After that date, Emergency Department services will be available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven (7) days each week.

After those hours, Emergency Department services will be available at these locations: St. Joseph's Hospital of Estevan, 64 km west; Arcola Health Centre, 68 km northwest; and Redvers Health Centre, 87 km northeast.

Medical doctors serving the area have been advised to admit their clients to these alternate health centres for treatment.

"We're hoping the changes at Galloway Health Centre will be short-term," says Marga Cugnet, Vice President of Primary and Integrated Care for Sun Country Regional Health Authority.

"We apologize for the inconvenience this will cause," she said.

"We want residents of this area to know we are aggressively recruiting the new nursing staff we need for the Galloway Health Centre," she said.
