Temporary disruption to obstetrical services at Cypress Regional Hospital in Swift Current

Posted on 23 March 2022 by Prairie Post

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

8-1-1.
