Chase emergency department temporarily shut down

Chase’s emergency department is closed again this week due to limited physician availability, according to an Interior Health press release.

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday this week, residents are asked to dial 911 for medical emergencies.

Interior Health suggests traveling to the emergency departments in Kamloops or Salmon Arm hospitals for non-urgent matters.

Those with medical questions can call HealthLink BC at 811. The toll-free line provides 24-hour, confidential health information and advice from a registered nurse.

Emergency Department services normally operate Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The rest of the Health Centre will remain open with other services available as usual.
