Back to the ER Closures for Prince Rupert ... with PRRH facility to close at 11 PM tonight, won't reopen until 4 PM Monday


After a few nights of full service for Prince Rupert Regional Hospital, Northern Health has once again issued an Emergency Room Closure notice, the Health Authority using their social media stream to advise residents of the situation. 

This latest closure taking place Sunday night at 11 PM until 4 PM on Monday afternoon. 

As it was last week for the five consecutive nights of ER closures, this latest one is due to the challenges of arranging for physician coverage for the facility

The closure tonight however is the lengthiest one so far extending for seventeen hours and through much of the day Monday.

The closures come during the two week spring school break period, which still has one more week to go, then leads into the Long Easter weekend ahead.

The Prince Rupert Regional Hospital ER was closed last week on consecutive nights from March 15th to the 20th with a three day reprieve from March 21-23.

You can review some of the notes related to those closures from our archive page.
