Emergency Department Closure Cancelled


A planned emergency department closure at the St Marys Memorial Hospital tonight is no longer needed.

The Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance says they will no longer see the reduction in service which was first issued due to health human resource shortages.

The closure which was expected to start this evening at 9pm and reopen at Friday morning has been called off and the ED will continue to run 24 hours.

The healthcare alliance thanks their team members for stepping up to ensure the services are not interrupted.
