Prince Rupert's ER at PRRH to be Closed Wednesday from 8AM to 4PM

Another day to add to the calendar for suspension of services at the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital Emergency Room, with Northern Health relaying word of the Wednesday daytime closure at mid evening Tuesday by way of their social media stream.

The Wednesday Closure will see the Emergency Room closed from 8 AM to 4PM

As has been the case since March 15th and the previous eight such closures, an inability to secure physician services for the Emergency Room is the reason stated.

The latest closure comes following a visit to Prince Rupert on Tuesday by Health Minister Adrian Dix, in a social media post, MLA Jennifer Rice observed of the Ministers day of discussion with health providers and health authority officials.

Ms. Rice's social media message did not state as to whether the Health Minister was extending his stay in the city through Wednesday.
