B.C. government unveils app to find ER’s, hospitals and walk-in clinics

COQUITLAM, B.C. – B.C. residents looking for the nearest hospital or walk-in health clinic can now just check their mobile device, as long as it’s an Apple product.

The provincial government has unveiled an application for the iPhone, iPad and iPod that can help people find a range of health services, from emergency rooms to after-hours pharmacies.

The latest health and medical news emailed to you every Sunday.

In addition to addresses, the details include the hours of operation, contact information and wheelchair accessibility.

The application will also provide the latest health alerts and give users instant access to the 811 line for non-emergency health information.

The program is available only through the iTunes App Store, but the government is working on making it available to other non-Apple mobile devices.
