Temporary ED Closures at Durham hospital (August 24th) and Chesley hospital (August 27th and 29th)

Due to unexpected health human resource shortages, the Emergency Departments at the Durham and Chesley sites of South Bruce Grey Health Centre (SBGHC) will be temporarily closed during the time periods as listed below:

The Durham ED will be closed from:

  • 2000 on Wednesday, August 24th (tonight) to 0700 on Thursday, August 25th

The Chesley ED will be closed from:

  • 1700 on Saturday, August 27th to 0700 on Sunday, August 28th
  • 1700 on Monday, August 29th  to 0700 on Tuesday, August 30th

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.
