Nova Scotia Health Authority wishes to advise the public that the emergency department at Northside General Hospital will remain closed until further notice. The emergency department was scheduled to reopen on Thursday, Mar. 26, at 8 a.m. but will now remain closed. This closure is due to the need to direct physician and nursing resources to other health care needs.
Many Nova Scotia Health Authority services are being reduced or suspended until further notice as part of the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19 as well as to conserve and redeploy our resources in anticipation of increasing demand related to the pandemic.
