Grande Cache is currently without network, landline or cellphone services

911 calls can still be made from cellphones but 911 calls cannot be made from landlines. The Grande Cache Community Health Complex remains open and continues to provide care to all patients. EMS continues to be available for area residents. The cause of the issue is being investigated by Telus.

Strategic Clinical Network

The Surgery SCN believes surgical care can be delivered “sooner, safer and smarter” by using evidence to inform decision making at all levels. By finding, sharing and spreading best practises, will ensure patient care at the bedside is safe and effective.

We will help ensure care is available in the right place and at the right time and offers good value for money. The Surgery SCN is dedicated to making surgical care in our province efficient and sustainable.
