New Denver and area residents are advised of temporary changes to emergency department hours at Slocan Community Health Centre due to limited nursing availability.

Emergency services will be unavailable on Saturday, March 23. Patients can access care at Arrow Lakes Hospital at 97-1st Ave NE, Nakusp. Emergency services will reopen for regular hours from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday, March 24.

People in the community who need life-threatening emergency care (i.e., chest pains, difficulty breathing, severe bleeding) should always call 9-1-1 for transport to the nearest available and appropriate facility.

Anyone unsure whether an emergency room visit is warranted can call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1, or visit for non-emergency health information from nurses, dietitians and pharmacists 24 hours a day, seven days per week.

The emergency department at Slocan Community Health Centre is normally open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week.
