High bed occupancy rate at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre

Moncton, Tuesday, April 18, 2019 – The Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre has been coping with very high bed occupancy rates in the Emergency and within the establishment.

Until Tuesday, April 23, 2019, Vitalité Health Network is asking the members of the public whose condition does not require urgent care to make an appointment with their family physician, to visit a walk-in clinic, or to call Tele-Care (811) instead of reporting to the Emergency Department. If an Emergency visit is still deemed necessary, the public is informed to expect longer than usual wait times for non-critical situations.

Vitalité Health Network apologizes for any inconvenience this situation may cause.
