Please be advised of the temporary disruption to anesthesia services at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre effective Friday, November 27th at 4 p.m. until 8 a.m. on Saturday, November 28, 2020. Please note this disruption is due to an unexpected shortage in coverage for anesthesiology and is not COVID-19 related.
