Here's a message from Interior Health for everyone who needs to go to the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital:
Patients and visitors are advised that the access route to Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH) is changing. The walkway that runs around the construction zone will be adjusted effective Nov. 25.
Signage will be in place to direct patients and visitors to the right place.
A shuttle vehicle remains available to drive anyone who requires assistance from their cars in the parking lot to the hospital access.
Interior Health is urging anyone coming to the hospital to follow signage and direction from flaggers if they are on site. Please allow for additional time for parking wherever possible prior to a scheduled appointment or visit to the hospital.
The overall project will result in significant improvements to emergency department care and other care at KBRH and Interior Health will continue to do everything possible to minimize the impacts to patients and visitors during construction. We regret any inconvenience residents may experience due to this temporary change and the ongoing construction work.
