Temporary disruption in the Beaverlodge Emergency Department

Due to the inability to guarantee medical coverage, the Beaverlodge Municipal Hospital Emergency Department is temporarily closed during the following times:

  • Wednesday, June 5, 8:00 AM to Friday, June 7, 8:00 AM

Nursing staff will remain on site in the Emergency Department and provide urgent triage, assessments and referrals for patients to alternative Emergency Departments in neighboring communities.

Patients are asked to call 911 during these times if they have a medical emergency. Paramedics remain available to the community and are being diverted to surrounding facilities, including Grande Prairie Regional Hospital.

Community members are reminded to call Health Link at 811, which is available 24/7 for non-emergency health-related questions.

If cover is found, disruptions can be canceled. 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.

We are grateful for the support from surrounding healthcare centers and medical staff and would like to thank the community for its patience and understanding during this time.
