Doctor shortage results in two-day closure of Sparwood Primary Health Care CentrePosted: July 17, 2012
Residents of the Sparwood and Elkford areas are advised that the emergency department in Sparwood will be closed Saturday, July 21 and Sunday, July 22 due to limited physician availability. The emergency department will reopen on Monday, July 23, reported Interior Health today (July 17).
Sparwood and Elkford residents should take note of the following if they require care when the emergency department is closed:
In the event of an emergency, call 9-1-1.
People who require non-urgent care can go to emergency department in Fernie (24/7).
