The Network asks to reduce Emergency Department visits at Dr.Georges-L.-Dumont UHC

Moncton, Tuesday, April 26, 2022 – Vitalité Health Network asks that the public limit their visits to the Emergency department of Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre, except in cases of an emergency. This temporary measure is due to a lack of nursing staff and overcrowding in the hospital facility.

This will be in effect: Tuesday, April 26, 2022 until further notice. 

The Emergency department of the hospital will remain available for people who need urgent care and who wish to see a doctor. However, the Network asks that people whose health condition is not critical see their family doctor, see their community pharmacist, or call Tele-Care (811).

People who still come to the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont UHC Emergency department for non-urgent reasons may be referred to another hospital or asked to return the next day if their condition permits.

The Network thanks the public for their valuable co-operation.
