On Friday Labrador-Grenfell Health announced that all obstetrical services will be diverted from Labrador Health Centre to Labrador West Health Centre in Labrador City until January 13.

Additionally, all coastal medevac patients will be diverted to a Labrador-Grenfell Health facility outside of the Labrador Health Centre.

Lela Evans, the NDP MHA for Torngat Mountains says she is "deeply concerned" about this diversion.

Evans said she did speak to Heather Brown the CEO of Labrador Grenfell Health to ask questions and voice her concerns. Evans said she doesn’t want the unavailability of the Happy Valley-Goose Bay Health Centre to delay patients on the north coast from being sent out to receive appropriate care.
