Due to critical health human resources shortages, the Chesley hospital Emergency Department (ED) is temporarily closed.
Anyone requiring immediate medical attention should call 911 to be taken to the nearest Emergency Department. For non-urgent health care needs, Health Connect Ontario is available 24/7 for non-emergency health-related questions by calling 811.
We appreciate the patience and understanding of the community as we continue to experience significant staffing pressures.
This is a temporary measure, and we regret that this step must be taken.
