Emergency and acute care services have resumed at the hospital in Wolseley after they were temporarily suspended nearly a year ago due to a doctor shortage.

The Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region says the services resumed Monday morning at Wolseley Memorial Hospital after four more doctors were recruited to the area.

Two of the new physicians will work in Indian Head, while the other two will be located in Broadview. That will bring the total number of doctors in each of those communities to three.

The health region says Dr. Don Pebane is relocating from Indian Head to Wolseley, where he will be helping to provide emergency and acute care services.

His brother, Dr. Bright Pebane, will be assisting him in Wolseley, while continuing to provide primary care in Grenfell.

Dr. Egorume Anochie, who was temporarily working in Wolseley during the service disruption, will now be practicing in Indian Head.

In July 2013, emergency and acute care services were temporarily suspended after two doctors decided to leave the community, located about 100 kilometres east of Regina.
