York Hospital announced this week that they are suspending emergency-level services at their Wells location on Sanford Road.

In a statement on their website, the hospital said that they are temporarily suspending emergency services beginning Monday, October 25 at the Wells location only with Wells Walk-In Care still offering urgent care seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Patients who have life-threatening symptoms are asked to dial 911 or visit the Emergency Department at York Hospital in York.

No reason was given for the temporary suspension of emergency services at York Hospital in Wells other than to say that the move will allow the hospital to better care for their patients.

The temporary suspension follows a similar announcement earlier this month by Central Maine Medical Center that they were suspending admissions of pediatric, heart attack and trauma patients.

We can only speculate as to the reason for the suspension but make sure you have a plan in case of emergency so you are able to get you and your loved ones the treatment they need as quickly as possible.
