May 1, 2023: Newfoundland and Labrador Health Services would like to remind residents of Lewisporte and the surrounding area of the ongoing temporary reduction in laboratory services at the Lewisporte Health Centre, which became effective April 18, 2023, due to a human resource challenge.
During this time, patients may experience longer than usual wait times and may be referred to Gander or Grand Falls-Windsor for laboratory services. There will be no change in the services provided by the Medical Imaging Department. This reduction of service will be reviewed on a weekly basis and any changes will be communicated. Newfoundland and Labrador Health Services thanks the public for their understanding as we continue to focus on providing safe and quality care for residents of the Central Zone.
