The Sylvan Lake Advanced Ambulatory Care Service (SLAACS) will be closed temporarily on Friday, June 7. 

The closure of the service from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday follows a series of temporary closures that took place over the past week.

During the temporary closure, people can access medical care for urgent health concerns at facilities in nearby communities including Red Deer and Rocky Mountain House.

Appointments scheduled with other services located at the Sylvan Lake Community Health Centre are not impacted by the temporary closure of the SLAACS. 

People in need of emergency medical care should call 9-1-1.

The SLAACS offers diagnosis and treatment for urgent but non-life-threatening conditions including minor cuts or burns, muscle and joint strains, bone fractures, and fever in young children. 

Alberta Health Services and local medical staff recognize that the temporary closures are concerning and will continue to collaborate to secure additional support for the SLAACS.
