Sylvan Lake Advanced Ambulatory Care Service closed Monday

Sylvan Lake Advanced Ambulatory Care Service will be closed throughout much of Monday.

Alberta Health Services announced the service would be closed from 2-10 p.m. due to a lack of physician coverage.

“This temporary closure is necessary as the service cannot operate without a physician onsite. Options to secure alternative coverage have been exhausted, and reducing hours is a last resort,” AHS said in a press release.

The service is scheduled to resume normal operation on Tuesday from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Patients arriving at the Sylvan Lake Community Health Centre to receive care at the Advanced Ambulatory Care Service during the temporary closure will be redirected to other available care options as appropriate to their needs.
