REMINDER: Obstetrical delivery services at James Paton Memorial Regional Health Centre - 03/04/2017

 

Central Health would like to remind the public that while obstetrical delivery services have resumed at James Paton Memorial Regional Health Centre, due to unforeseen circumstances obstetrical delivery services will be intermittent at this facility until further notice.

If you feel you may be in labour and your intended place of delivery is James Paton Memorial Regional Health Centre, please call 709.256.5607 or 709.256.5608 to determine whether you should proceed to that facility or to the Central Newfoundland Regional Health Centre in Grand Falls-Windsor. However, if you feel that delivery may happen quickly, please go to the Emergency Department at James Paton Memorial Regional Health Centre in Gander for assessment.

Central Health thanks the public for their understanding and patience as the health region continues to focus on providing quality care for obstetrical patients.

Updates on obstetrical delivery services will continue to be posted on Central Health's website and Twitter (@CentralHealthNL).
