Elective surgeries will resume at the following Eastern Health acute-care facilities starting today:
> Dr. G. B. Cross Hospital, Clarenville
> Carbonear General Hospital
> Burin Peninsula Health Care Centre
Elective surgeries had been cancelled Monday because of bad weather and power outages that affected Eastern Health facilities on the weekend. Emergency surgeries had been continuing as usual.
In Clarenville, routine, walk-in X-ray services will not be available today.
Interruptions may continue for other services and people with appointments are being contacted by Eastern Health. If someone has a scheduled appointment for any service and has not been contacted, they should assume the appointment is going ahead.
