Temporary Closure of Detox Unit at Horizon’s Victoria Health Centre

Jean Daigle, Vice President Community, Horizon Health Network

Due to the ongoing nursing shortage we have temporarily closed our ten-bed detox unit at Horizon's Victoria Health Centre in Fredericton.

During this temporary closure, all detox clients/patients will be transferred to a Horizon facility in either Moncton, Saint John or Miramichi. All of these centres have capacity to accept referrals from Fredericton, and we will provide provisions for patients/clients who will require assistance for transportation to another detox centre.

Our staff will not be affected as they are being temporarily reassigned to Horizon's Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital.

These temporary changes were made to ensure safe and quality care to all our patients.
