The emergency department at Port McNeill’s hospital will be closed for most of the weekend because of staff unavailability.
Island Health says the department will close at 5:30 p.m. today and open again on Sunday at 7 a.m. All other in-patient services will run as normal, according to Island Health.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, Island Health says to call 911 or get to Port Hardy Hospital’s emergency department if possible.
