AGH emergency department will be closed on night of September 5

The Emergency Department (ED) at Almonte General Hospital (AGH) will close at 7 p.m. today – Monday, September 5th. It will re-open at 7 a.m. tomorrow – Tuesday, September 6th.  Patients will not be accepted after 4:30 p.m. to ensure the department can close at 7 p.m. This temporary closure is due to a nursing staff shortage due to illness. The rest of the hospital is still open and caring for patients.

“Patient and staff safety is our main priority,” notes Mary Wilson Trider, President and CEO. “Our dedicated teams at both Almonte General Hospital and Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital continue to work to ensure we have the necessary staff to support our community with their health care needs. We are closely supported by our team at the Lanark County Paramedic Service.”

Anyone requiring immediate medical attention should call 9-1-1.  Paramedics will take you to the nearest Emergency Department for care.

Patients can also speak with a Registered Nurse at Telehealth Ontario by calling toll-free 1-866-797-0000 or TTY 1-866-797-0007.  This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
