A disruption of obstetrical services at the Meadow Lake Hospital will remain in effect until further notice. Out of an abundance of caution, the unit is being closed following a COVID-19 outbreak on the surgical ward which utilizes many of the same staff as obstetrics. The hospital continues to perform day and emergency surgeries, but is not performing routine inpatient surgeries at this time.
During the disruption, patients requiring obstetrical services will be screened and redirected to Lloydminster Hospital or the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital in Saskatoon. High risk patients will be sent to the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital in Saskatoon.
In the event of an emergency, call 9-1-1. Non-urgent health-related questions should be directed to HealthLine by calling 8-1-1.
We thank the community for their understanding and patience during this time.
