Obstetrical Services to remain at CNRHC until September 2022

April 22, 2022


Central Health would like to inform the public that due to the shortage of human resources to assist with obstetrical cases, obstetrical services at Central Health will remain at Central Newfoundland Regional Health Centre (CNRHC), in Grand Falls-Windsor until September 2022.


Midwifery care provision will be limited to prenatal and postnatal care for the interim, due to lack of resources.


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.
