The Collaborative Emergency Centre (CEC) at Western Hospital will be closed the evenings of July 24 and 25.

Health PEI says the closures are due to a temporary lack of Registered Nurse coverage.

Anyone with emergency medical needs should call 911 or seek emergency services when:

- experiencing discomfort or tightness in the chest;

- experiencing unusual shortness of breath;

- experiencing abdominal pain;

- experiencing prolonged and persistent headache or dizziness;

- an injury may require stitches or involve a broken bone;

- a child has prolonged diarrhea or vomiting; or

- a baby under six months of age has a fever of 38°C (100.4°F) or higher.

If a person has any health concerns or need immediate health information, call 811 to speak to an experienced registered nurse for advice on the best course of action.
