Construction work begins this week in Glace Bay Hospital’s lab, diagnostic imaging (X-ray) registration area

Construction work starts this week on building upgrades to the registration area for the laboratory and diagnostic imaging (X-ray) at Glace Bay Hospital.

Work will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 14 and is expected to take up to 12 weeks to complete.

While work is underway, temporary registration desks will be set up – one for the lab and one for diagnostic imaging (X-ray). The temporary desks will be near the existing registration area. Signage will be in place to direct people to each desk.

People are asked to use caution in the area where work is being done. Also, please follow COVID-19 measures including visitor restrictions, social distancing, wearing a non-medical mask, social distancing and good hand hygiene.

Nova Scotia Health appreciates your patience and cooperation while this work is underway.
