UPDATE 12/21: Urgent Care is to open again on December 26th.
ORIGINAL STORY 12/5:
The Urgent Care service at La Paz Regional Hospital is to be closed temporarily due to a provider shortage, according to a press release Monday.
“We understand this is an inconvenience during flu season and are working hard to ensure this transition is as quick as possible,” the statement said. “This does not affect the Emergency Room, which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We appreciate your patience and support and will notify the public as soon as the Urgent Care services return.
