Temporary Diversion of Emergency Services at Fogo Island Health Centre

Central Health would like to advise that from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm tomorrow, Thursday, July 15, there will be a diversion of emergency and physician outpatient services at the Fogo Island Health Centre. The service diversion is due to a current unavailability of physician services.


The following services will not be impacted by this diversion and will proceed as normal:

  • Long-term Care – no impact on services

  • X-Ray and Laboratory services – no impact on services


During this time, residents can call 811 to speak to a Nurse Practitioner about their health concerns.


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 Fogo Island.
