Central Health would like to inform the public that due to the shortage of Physician resources to assist with obstetrical cases, obstetrical services at Central Health will remain at Central Newfoundland Regional Health Centre (CNRHC), in Grand Falls-Windsor for January 2022.
Midwives will continue to be supported within their scope of practice standards, and to allow for Midwifery services to be offered safely at James Paton Memorial Regional Health Centre (JPMRHC) for their clients who are currently availing of these services.
If delivery is imminent, pregnant women in labour should proceed to the nearest emergency centre for assessment.
If you have any questions in this regard, please contact your obstetrical care provider. For questions regarding your health, please call 811. For emergency assistance please call 911. Thank you for your understanding, cooperation and assistance in this matter.
