Services include a 24 hour Emergency department, Surgery, Medical Services, Women’s and Children’s Services, Rehabilitation and Palliative care, Mental Health, Outpatients, and community-based health programs.

This historical 110-bed hospital provides health services to a population of roughly 40,000 people living in the immediate area and approximately 6,000 people residing in the surrounding areas. The Emergency Department sees nearly 16,000 presentations annually, 3,000 of which are presented acutely. In addition to its emergency services, the facility provides 9,000 outpatient services and has 6,500 general admissions annually. The hospital is also considered a teaching hospital, allowing for its Specialist staff the opportunity to advise undergraduate medical students. A recent $800,000 refurbish of the hospital’s emergency department has allowed for three new patient care areas. The hospital is also considered to be a teaching hospital.
