Central Health rescheduling elective surgery at JPMRHC effective August 3

Central Health wishes to advise that it will be rescheduling elective surgeries booked at the James Paton Memorial Regional Health Centre (JPMRHC), in Gander, effective August 3rd, 2021. Clients impacted by this, who have upcoming elective surgery, will be contacted and rebooked at a future date.

Residents of the Central Newfoundland region who would normally receive Urgent and Emergent Surgical Services from JPMRHC, Gander, should expect to be transferred to the Central Newfoundland Regional Health Centre, in Grand Falls-Windsor, as their condition allows.

These changes are due to a temporary reduction in anesthesiology services.

Central Health will update the public when elective surgery services can resume at JPMRHC.

Central Health apologizes for any inconvenience this interruption in service may cause and would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation. If you have any questions in this regard, please contact Central Health’s Client Navigator at 1-844-651-6214 or email Central Health would like to thank the public for its understanding, cooperation and assistance in this matter.
