As a result of ongoing healthcare staff shortages, the Listowel Wingham Hospitals Alliance will face a temporary closure.
The Wingham and District Hospital Emergency Department will close Saturday August 6th at 5:00 pm and reopen Sunday August 7th at 7:00 am.
COVID continues to be present throughout the community, and a single staff sick call may result in additional potential closures.
Patients are asked to call 911 if they have a medical emergency. Emergency Medical Services will remain available to the community and will be re-routed to surrounding hospitals to ensure local residents continue to have access to the emergency services they need.
For non urgent health care call Health Connect Ontario at 811, which is available 24/7 for non- emergency health-related questions.
