Residents are advised that due to limited physician availability in September, there will be times when only the most urgent cases will be seen by the physician on call.

The Emergency Department will remain open during these times and patients will be assessed as usual by our trained nurses. Those with less urgent matters may be transferred to a nearby hospital for care or offered appropriate options.

If this is the case, it is important to come prepared: Bring your wallet, shoes and clothing and make arrangements for the return home.

If you are unsure what services you need, call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 for confidential health information and advice from a registered nurse.

For further information, please call Princeton General Hospital at 250-295-3233
