Surgery concerns in Saint John

Horizon Health is trying to deal with what some are calling a crisis in thoracic surgeries in the Saint John region. Officials are scrambling to come up with alternative plans to diagnose and treat patients, according to CBC.

Horizon Health has only said no thoracic surgery coverage is available in the zone covering Sussex to St. Stephen because the only specialized¬† surgeon on staff is unavailable…and likely to continue for at least another four weeks.
