North Wellington Health Care’s (NWHC) Palmerston and District Hospital and Louise Marshall Hospital will continue redirecting obstetrical (OB) services until further notice.
NWHC hospitals have been on OB redirect since June 6th, 2022. “This change in service is necessary as we continue to deal with health human resource shortages,” states Angela Stanley, President and CEO, NWHC. “Any OB patient should check with their physician to determine the best care plan. We have worked closely with our neighbouring hospitals and midwifery groups to notify them of the potential for increased volumes.”
