The Saskatchewan Health Authority(SHA) would like to advise residents of Preeceville and surrounding area that emergency services will resume at Preeceville and District Health Centre effective 8 a.m. on Monday, May 31, 2021.
At that time, the emergency department will re-open to provide services for patients requiring urgent or emergency care. The SHA appreciates the patience and cooperation of the residents of Preeceville and surrounding area throughout the period emergency services were temporarily unavailable and the support local nursing staff provided to assist the provincial COVID-19 response.
The SHA is maintaining surge capacity across the province in order to support patient and staffing needs. Emergency services at Preeceville and District Health Centre may be subject to change in response to COVID activity in the province.
Due to increased COVID-19 activity in the Yorkton area and the resulting increase in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) capacity and patient acuity, realignment of health services to support patient care was required. Emergency services at Preeceville & District Health Centre have been temporarily unavailable since Tuesday, April 20 while Preeceville nursing staff were redeployed and a physician and nurse practitioner were placed on standby to support the SHA’s pandemic response in Yorkton. Primary health care services and clinic appointments remained available in Preeceville during this time.
While the COVID-19 vaccine is distributed across the province in a targeted, phased approach, Saskatchewan residents are reminded that all residents can help the health system meet the demand created by the COVID-19 virus. Please help us stop the spread of the virus:
