Lower level entrances at Harbourview Hospital to experience intermittent closures for maintenance

SYDNEY MINES, N.S. – The lower level entrances (ambulance bay and receiving bay) at Harbourview Hospital in Sydney Mines, will be experiencing intermittent closures to allow for maintenance work.

Starting Thursday, Feb. 25, the ambulance bay and receiving bay entrances will be experiencing intermittent closures for two days. These closures are necessary to replace hardware and install a new control access system at the entrances. Please note: both entrances will not be closed at the same time. Closures will alternate so one entrance will be open. Signage will be in place to indicate which entrance is closed. There may also be short closures at these entrances in the coming weeks to allow follow-up work to be done.

While this work is underway, the main entrance will be used for ambulance traffic as well as patients requiring drop-off, visitors and pedestrian traffic. Signage will be in place to direct people to the main entrance.

Please use caution if you are near the area where work is being done and follow all signage. Also, please remember to follow COVID-19 measures including visitor restrictions, social distancing, wearing a non-medical mask and good hand hygiene.

Nova Scotia Health appreciates your patience and cooperation during this work.
