Princeton ER to close Christmas Eve

A lack of available staff means people needing emergency care in the Princeton area should be aware that Princeton General Hospital's Emergency Department will be closed from 7:00 p.m. December 24th to 7:00 a.m. December 25th.

During the hours the Emergency Department is closed, residents should take note of the following:

  •     In the event of an emergency, call 9-1-1.
  •     For non-urgent matters, residents may wish to use the emergency department in Penticton
  •     If individuals are unsure about what services they require, call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1.
  •     The toll-free line provides 24-hour, confidential health information and advice from a registered nurse.

Interior Health says it regrets this interruption to service.
