Central Health said obstetrical delivery and pediatric services will resume at the James Paton Memorial Regional Health Centre in Gander as of 8 p.m. Friday.

Those services were not available since Dec. 16 because of doctor shortages. During that time, the health authority requested that patients go to the hospital in Grand Falls-Windsor. 

Central Health now has a pediatrician working in Gander temporarily while waiting for a physician to fill a permanent position in April.
