Recruitment efforts continue for Central Health facilities on the Connaigre Peninsula

April 1, 2022


Central Health would like to advise that recruitment efforts for both physicians and non-physician healthcare workers continue across the region as we manage human resource shortages at some of our facilities.


With regard to the recruitment efforts on the Connaigre Peninsula, Central Heath has secured the following locum physician coverage:

  • Connaigre Peninsula Health Centre in Harbour Breton for parts of May and June

  • Bay d’Espoir Community Health Centre in St Alban’s for July. The visiting physician in St. Alban’s will offer appointment-based care from Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

While on diversion, residents requiring emergency services during this time are advised to call 911 or proceed to the nearest emergency room at Central Newfoundland Regional Health Centre in Grand Falls-Windsor, where they will be seen.


If you have any questions about the upcoming services, please call (709) 885-3212.

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 Connaigre Peninsula.
