Kipling Emergency Department to re-open, New date August 25

Twenty-four hour emergency and inpatient services at Kipling Memorial Health Centre will resume at 7 a.m. Monday August 25, 2014.  From now until then, emergency services will be provided from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. only, due to a shortage of nursing staff.

“This is a longer period of time than we originally understood the facility would be short-staffed,” says Marga Cugnet, CEO, Sun Country Health Region.  “At the end of June, we believed the short staffing would last until July 9.  We apologize for this inconvenience to the people of Kipling and area.”

Mrs. Cugnet said people should always call 911 if they need an ambulance.

If they can benefit from other kinds of health care information during the hours the emergency department is closed, they can call 811 for Healthline or sear on Healthline online at

"If you are travelling to an emergency department, please travel to Moosomin Integrated Health Centre, Broadview Union Hospital, or Arcola Health Centre.  That will allow you to find emergency services as soon as possible,” she says.

Sun Country Health Region is working diligently to find additional nursing staff.  If we can re-open these services sooner than August 25, we will advise the public immediately.”
