Pugwash ER closed Friday
Amherst Daily News
AMHERST - The emergency department at the North Cumberland Memorial Hospital in Pugwash will be closed from 8 am until 8 pm Jan. 7.
This 12-hour closure is necessary because no physician is available to provide the required medical coverage.
At all times, those experiencing a medical emergency should always call 911. The emergency response system is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to provide immediate medical assistance.
If medical service of a non-emergency nature is required, individuals should contact their family doctor’s office to make an appointment.
A toll-free phone call can also be made to 811 where registered nurses are available around the clock to give advice and information and to provide reassurance concerning all kinds of general health concerns. Anyone who is unclear on a proper course of action may also contact the Hospital at 902-243-2521.
