Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital (FSCH) has reopened obstetrical services and resumed deliveries.

Alberta Health Services (AHS) pushed the care to the Sturgeon Community Hospital in St. Albert due to the absence of regular and on-call obstetrician coverage at the local hospital.

In a release, AHS thanked residents of Fort Saskatchewan for their patience.

"We are also grateful for the support provided by the staff and physicians at Sturgeon Community Hospital through this period," AHS added.

The closure was put in place on Aug. 6.
