Temporary closure of Ashcroft ER

The Emergency Room at the Ashcroft hospital will be closed over the Victoria Day long weekend.

Interior Health has announced that the Emergency Department of the Ashcroft Hospital will be closed over the May long weekend due to a lack of physician availability. Emergency Department services will not be available from 8:00 a.m. on Monday, May 16 until 6:00 p.m. on Friday, May 27.

During the hours the Emergency Department is closed, residents should call 911 in the event of an emergency. For non-urgent matters, residents may wish to use the Emergency Departments or walk-in clinics in Kamloops, Lillooet, 100 Mile House, or Merritt. Anyone who is unsure what services they require can call HealthLink BC at 811. The toll-free line provides 24-hour, confidential health information and advice from a registered nurse.
