Emergency services only at Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre today

Nova Scotia Health is advising the public that Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre (CRHCC) in Amherst will be providing essential services only today.

Patients with appointments for ambulatory services (blood collection, diagnostic imaging and clinics) are advised to call the hospital (902-667-3361) to confirm if the appointment will go ahead.

The Emergency Department remains open to care for patients needing urgent and emergency care.

This temporary interruption in service is due to a protest at the New Brunswick/Nova Scotia provincial border that is preventing some health care workers who reside in New Brunswick to report to work at CRHCC today.

We apologize to our patients and families for this inconvenience.
