Limited hours for Kings County ER on Friday, Monday
All-day Friday closure and Monday evening closure due to lack of physicians
The emergency department at Kings County Memorial Hospital will be closed all day Friday as well as on Monday evening next week from 4 to 10 p.m.
In a written release, Health PEI said the closure is because of a temporary lack of physician coverage.
Anyone with urgent medical needs should call 911 or go to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital ER.
For non-urgent care, Islanders are encouraged to visit their primary care provider or a walk-in clinic. Those with health concerns or in need of health information can also call 811 to speak with an experienced registered nurse.
