Eastern Memorial Hospital to add automation to main line phone number

Eastern Memorial Hospital in Canso is moving to an automated system for its main phone line later this month.

Beginning Monday, June 21, calls to the hospital’s main phone line will be answered by an automated computer attendant. Callers will be given three options - to dial a person’s extension, search a directory or wait to speak to a person. This will be a change in process, so callers are urged to listen to the options and not hang up thinking they may have misdialed.

The new system will mean that callers will be able to go directly to a person, program or service more quickly.

Only the main phone line will be changed. The hospital’s main phone line number is 902-366-2794.
