South Okanagan General Hospital ED Temporary Service Change - August 13


Public Service Announcement
For Immediate Release  |  August 11, 2017

OIVER/OSOYOOS – Residents are advised that due to limited physician availability at the South Okanagan General Hospital (SOGH) emergency department (ED), the ED will be closed on Sunday, August 13 at 3 p.m. and will remain closed until the next morning.

Please take note of the following:

  • The ED will close on Sunday, August 13 at 3 p.m. and reopen Monday, August 14 at 8 a.m.
  • The ED will remain open outside of these hours.
Interior Health regrets this interruption to our normal emergency department services. Residents should take note of the following if they require care when the emergency department is closed:
  • In the event of an emergency, call 9-1-1.
  • Visit the emergency department at Penticton Regional Hospital.
  • Call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 (24 hour service), if you are unsure about your need to go to the emergency department.

Interior Health has been working closely with our physician group to secure coverage for this time, but so far we have been unsuccessful. If we are able to secure coverage by end of day, we will inform the public.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
