    I’ve blocked it and still get repeated calls. Says it’s my area code. I have never answered it and from the look of the complaint comments above, I sure won’t. So glad I had call display.

    This number has called me several times. I have never been to the hospital nor have I been out if the state I live in. How can we stop these calls. I blocked them and they still call at all hours. I was woke up at midnight from this number. Most annoying person on earth. STOP CALLING ME!

    This number is a government number mainly used for The Winnipeg regional health Authority, if you leave an emergency room without being seen. They will call for up to 24/hrs to see if you are OK and have sought other medical care for the reason you were at emergency. because of PHIA (personal Health Information Act) they are not aloud to say anything to anyone, Unless it is the patient there calling for.You may say you're that person, and you will find out the info.The number is also used for other health/GVMT related services connected to WRHA, Such as Well being checks, health links call back if you are disconnected, or to check at a later date how you are, person in hospital making a call, a nurse reminding of appointment, the after hours social services relay program, and Probation's Manitoba. They are not allowed to say who they are, as this would violate PHIA, as that person whom attended emergency might not want anyone to know they were there.(As in a personal/private matter) I call the hospital, or all of them to see if theirs someone I know in there, worked once when a friend was in emergency, and attempting to call, they can't leave messages for the above reasons as well.... To protect the patient I guess. But if the patient asks for a nurse to call and let's it be known there in a hospital this number will also be used, and the Hosp. can relay the message, and give the info, that the patient is in care at that hospital. Also included Urgent Care centers.

    This is also the number used for the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority's after hours service.  My girlfriend works as a healthcare aide and often gets calls from this number when her schedule is changed or during emergencies.  Perhaps some people getting calls from this number receive home care services?

    Hi, It was very nice of you to let us know what the call was about, and it did help me out! My son left the hospital without seeing anyone the other day. I don\t understand the need to be rude though and I don't understand why they cannot say where they are calling from. Just sayin WRHA doesn't really mean anything. Anyways, Bryan was very nice and helpful, but he does not make the rules, its very unfortunate that his number is now on the internet. What about his privacy? Please remove his number and last name from this post. Its not going to help anyone. He seems like a very nice man, very patient and understanding, which I am not sure if I would be. Thanks

    Just rec'd a call from that number, asking for my daughter by name.She refused to tell me who she was when I asked and in turn, I told her I wasn't allowedto tell her whether my daughter was home or not.  She hung up.

    by law... hospitals cannot identify themselves to anyone but the person... as PHIA protects pretty much ALL medical information, no matter how menial it may seem. Very happy about this myself...
