Hawkesbury Hospital Emergency Closure

Following the announcement of the Hawkesbury and District General Hospital (HGH) Emergency Department closure between December 30, 2022, and January 3, 2023, the United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR) Emergency Services would like to inform the public of possible impacts on its paramedic service.

Due to the longer travel time needed to transport patients to other nearby hospitals, response times may be longer than usual. To ensure emergency operations are carried out efficiently, until further notice, patients will not be able to choose to which hospital they will be transported.

During this period, all necessary efforts and resources will be deployed to maintain the safety of patients and the highest standards of service.

In the event of an emergency, residents should not hesitate to contact 9-1-1.
