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.
