The Wabasca-Desmarais Health Care Centre Emergency Department (ED) will be temporarily without on-site physician coverage from Tuesday, May 17 at 8 a.m. to Friday, May 20 at 8 a.m.
During this time, nursing staff will remain on site in the Emergency Department providing urgent triage and assessments and referrals for patients to alternate Emergency Departments in neighboring communities. Nursing staff are not able to provide prescriptions.
This is a temporary measure and AHS is working hard to ensure local residents continue to have access to the care they need during this time.
AHS is thankful for the support of surrounding healthcare centers and medical staff and would like to thank the community for their patience and understanding during this time.
