Diversion of Emergency Services at Green Bay Health Centre

November 2, 2021


Due to a temporary physician shortage at the Green Bay Health Centre in Springdale, Emergency services will be diverted to Central Newfoundland Regional Health Centre (CNRHC) in Grand Falls-Windsor from 12:00 am to 8:00 am on Friday, November 5, 2021.


The service diversion is due to a current unavailability of physician services.


If residents require emergency services during this time, they are advised to call 911 or proceed to the emergency room at CNRHC in Grand Falls-Windsor, where they will be seen.


Central Health continues its efforts in recruitment for this area for both physicians and non-physician healthcare workers. Central Health has been engaging physicians directly about potential opportunities and is working with a recruitment firm to assist in its search for physicians.


We apologize for this interruption of service and thank the public for their understanding and patience as we continue to focus on providing safe and quality care for the residents of the Green Bay.
