Rural hospital's emergency department closed due to insufficient staffing


Officials made an early morning decision on Friday to temporarily close the emergency department in Chesley.

Anyone planning to head to the emergency room will have to keep going to the next closest hospital in Hanover, Walkerton, or Durham.

Those needing immediate medical assistance are advised to call 911.

Officials say the emergency department will reopen at 7 a.m. on Monday. Top Stories
