Central Health updating automated phoneline messaging

June 4, 2022


Central Health would like to advise that it is updating its automated phoneline messaging systems in health facilities throughout the region.


When Implemented those calling a Central Health facility to access Emergency and Ambulance Services will now be directed to call 911. This will create a standardized process for Emergency and Ambulance Services access within the central region.


Currently, 7 healthcare facilities have been updated with the new messaging advising callers to call 911 for Emergency and Ambulance Services:

  • Baie Verte Peninsula Health Centre – Baie Verte

  • Connaigre Peninsula Health Centre – Harbour Breton

  • Dr. Hugh Twomey Health Centre – Botwood

  • Dr. Y. K. Jeon Kittiwake Health Centre – New-Wes-Valley

  • Green Bay Health Centre – Springdale

  • North Haven Manor/After-Hours Clinic – Lewisporte

  • Notre Dame Bay Memorial Health Centre – Twillingate

The addition of the remaining Central Health facilities is forthcoming and an update will be provided when completed.


In the case of emergency, Central Health recommends calling 911 or proceeding to the nearest emergency room for immediate assistance.

Central Health thanks the public for their patience and cooperation as we incorporate this change.
