Barrington Community Health Clinic repair update

Work continues to repair water damage at the Barrington Community Health Clinic.

NSHA has been working closely with the owners of the building as the repairs make progress. Some of the work has included removing damaged materials, installing a vapor barrier, and replacing drywall. This is to be followed by painting and clean-up. Furniture and office equipment will then be moved back into the space and another, thorough cleaning will need to take place. Air quality testing also needs to happen before staff are able to return to the space. 

While there still could be additional work or unexpected circumstances, we hope staff will be able to move back into that space in the first full week of November, or possibly the week after. 

NSHA is committed to safety for all, and providing a safe, healthy workplace for staff and a safe environment for patients to receive care and services. 

We look forward to serving our patients and clients again from our regular location at the Barrington Community Health Clinic. 

People who require blood collection may use the services at Roseway Hospital in Shelburne or at Yarmouth Regional Hospital.

  • Roseway Hospital blood collection hours: Monday to Friday, 8 to 11 a.m.
  • Yarmouth Hospital blood collection hours: Monday to Friday: 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. (both closed on holidays)
