Emergency Departments at Horizon’s regional hospitals are extremely short staffed this weekend and priority will be given to trauma and critical care patients. Patients with non-urgent medical issues may experience long wait times.


Walk-in services at Horizon’s Queens North Community Health Centre closing at 3 p.m. TODAY

MINTO – Horizon wishes to notify the public that walk-in services at Horizon’s Queens North Community Health Centre (QNCHC) will close at 3 p.m. today, Friday, April 1.

This decision was necessary due to a shortage of available staff. No other services at the facility are being impacted.

Walk-in services will resume as scheduled tomorrow, Saturday, April 2, beginning at 8 a.m.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Those with non-urgent medical issues can consult with Tele-Care 811, a pharmacist or they may also consider arranging a virtual appointment, free of charge, through eVisitNB.
