The Seaforth Community Hospital is closing its emergency department due to sudden staffing shortages.
The Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance says the temporary closure will go into effect at 5 p.m. Tuesday. The ER will reopen Wednesday at 7 a.m. and return to 24-hour service at that point.
Anyone requiring immediate medical attention should call 9-1-1. Paramedics will re-route to the nearest available emergency department.
The closest 24-hour hospitals to Seaforth are in Exeter, Goderich and Stratford.
