The South Okanagan General Hospital’s emergency department will be closed overnight, until 9 a.m. on Monday, March 9.
Interior Health has issued an advisory that due to an “unexpected limited physician availability”, the emergency department will close starting at 6 p.m.
During this time, if people are in need of emergency care, they are advised to call 9-1-1, to go to the Penticton Regional Hospital, or to call HealthLinkBC at 8-1-1 to determine whether or not emergency care is required.
Only the services of the emergency department will be affected by the lack of physicians at the South Okanagan General Hospital.
