Public entrance opens for emergency project, opening on the way

Members of the public can now catch a quick, up-close glimpse of the new construction work at Flin Flon General Hospital.

The Northern Health Region (NHR) has not finalized the opening date for the new department, but the entrance to the department, accessible from Church Street and Fourth Avenue, opened on Feb. 1. The new Church Street entrance replaces the temporary entrance on the north side of the building, located near the Personal Care Home and Whitney Forum parking lot.

“We are working on finalizing the date still and will share that with you once it has been determined,” read a statement by an NHR spokesperson.

Meanwhile, NHR officials met with local politicians Jan. 29 at an information meeting, sharing reasons behind the recent suspension of obstetric services in Flin Flon, physician recruitment and the new department.

“The meeting went well and all questions were answered. Attendees indicated they appreciated the update and the opportunity to share their concerns with the region,” said the spokesperson.
