Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre back running at full capacity

Nova Scotia Health is advising the public that Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre in Amherst is now back operating at full capacity today.

Some services and procedures had to be postponed or cancelled yesterday due to a protest at the New Brunswick/Nova Scotia provincial border.

One hundred and ten appointments were cancelled or missed at the hospital yesterday as a result of the blockade.

We apologize to our patients and families for this inconvenience and staff will be calling all affected patients to rebook their missed appointments.
