Extended Waiting At OKEU Hospital A&E Department Announced


Individuals visiting the OKEU Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department will have to wait an extended time.

The Millennium Heights Medical Complex (MHMC) made the announcement Friday.

The MHMC comprises the OKEU Hospital, the National Mental Wellness Centrethe Turning Point Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre, and the Secondary Care Hospital.

It said a high influx of patients within the OKEU Hospital’s A&E Department would result in extended wait times, especially for non-urgent cases.

“To ensure access to healthcare services in the shortest possible time, persons are strongly advised to seek non-urgent care at their nearest community Wellness Centre,” the MHMC announcement stated.

It added that the MHMC, in the pursuit of excellence in providing quality health care services, thanks the public for their continued cooperation.
