PSA: Renovations to the Blood Collection Clinic at Colchester East Hants Health Centre

Renovations are underway at the Blood Collection Clinic at Colchester East Hants Health Centre in Truro.  The renovation will reduce wait times for both registration and blood collection by increasing the number of registration desks and enhancing the functionality of the space.

Renovation work is expected to be completed by Friday, Dec. 23.  All lab (blood) collection services will continue to be provided at the hospital during the renovations and no lab collection appointments will be impacted.  

Reminder: All blood collection services require booked appointments in advance, walk-in appointments cannot be accommodated. You can book your blood collection appointment online.  If you are unable to book an appointment online, you can call the Blood Collection Clinic at Colchester East Hants Health Centre at 1-833-637-1349 from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.

People are asked to be patient, check-in with the onsite screener when they enter the building and follow the wayfinding. People are also asked to use caution in any areas where work is being done and are reminded to follow COVID-19 measures including social distancing, wearing a medical mask and good hand hygiene. 

Upgrades to the Blood Collection Clinic are funded by the Colchester East Hants Health Centre Foundation.

Nova Scotia Health appreciates the public’s patience during the renovation.
