The IWK’s telephone system requires a significant upgrade to address immediate hardware and software requirements. On Thursday, July 7, 2016 beginning at 6:00 p.m., the health centre’s telephone system will be taken out of service for a period of approximately four hours as critical maintenance updates are completed.
Incoming calls to the Health Centre
External calls to the IWK switchboard (902-470-8888) during the downtime will be answered. Switchboard staff will then connect callers to Power Fail Telephone in the area(s) they are trying to reach.
Incoming calls to all other IWK numbers will hear a recorded message advising them of the downtime and directing them to call the IWK switchboard.
Callers will not be presented with the option to leave messages at any telephone number.
Calls to the Regional Poison Centre will not be impacted.Share
