With the recent completion of renovations to South Okanagan General Hospital, Interior Health would like to remind patients of some access changes.

The main entrance has returned to its normal operating hours and is open from 7:30 a.m. until 8 p.m.

During after hours (8 p.m. to 7:30 a.m.) public access will be through the new emergency department entrance, which will be open 24 hours, seven days a week.

Patients are also reminded that during daytime hours, the new emergency department entrance is for emergencies only, while the main entrance should be used for all other hospital services.
