Renovations underway at Parrsboro Urgent Treatment Centre

PARRSBORO, NS –The Parrsboro Urgent Treatment Centre, located at South Cumberland Community Care Centre, is being renovated to help better support patient care. 

Renovations are scheduled to start Monday, Oct. 30. 

All services will continue to be provided at South Cumberland Community Care Centre during the renovations. While work is underway, services will be provided with less available space and using different care spaces. Patients and visitors are asked to follow instructions and posted signage, and to use caution in any areas where work is underway.

The Parrsboro Urgent Treatment Centre opened in December 2021, providing care for people with unexpected, non-life-threatening health concerns that require same or next day treatment. As the number of patients and visits per day continues to increase, the centre is undergoing this necessary renovation to make the centre more spacious for staff and patients, and improve the patient experience. 

The project will be completed in phases and is expected to take four to six weeks. 

The urgent treatment centre will be fully accessible during the renovation with no change to how appointments are booked. 

We thank residents for their patience and cooperation during the renovation.

Updates and any potential service disruptions will be shared with the public as the renovation progresses.
