Please be advised of the temporary disruption to obstetrical services at the Cypress Regional Hospital in Swift Current for the following dates:
• Friday, March 25th at 4:00 p.m. to Sunday, March 27th at 9:30 a.m.
During this time, surgical and obstetrical consultations are available but the provision of emergent surgeries and c-sections will not be possible. Patients that present to the Cypress Regional Hospital during these hours will be assessed and, if determined to require urgent/emergent surgery, will be transferred to another facility. As a result of surgical service limitations, the Obstetrics Unit will only be providing low-risk, imminent or emergent deliveries.
Expectant mothers should call Cypress Regional Hospital at 306-778-9400 and ask to speak to the Women’s and Children’s Department at the first signs of labour to allow enough time for risk assessment, consultation, and a safe plan for delivery.
If your pregnancy is considered high risk, please consult your physician or call ahead to the hospital. In the event of an emergency call 9-1-1. Non-urgent health-related questions can be directed to the provincial HealthLine by calling
