The Eastern Zone is supported by the two regional hospitals and a host of community hospitals and health centres. Specialty services are distributed among the two regional hospitals located in Sydney and Antigonish. Located on the very Eastern point of Nova Scotia, the Zone boasts the stunning scenery of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park where the road climbs along the edge of Nova Scotia and it is a regular occurrence to hike among moose in their habitat. Enjoy the port city of Sydney and see the World’s Largest Fiddle on the friendly waterfront boardwalk. Cape Breton Island is known for a music scene that has prompted international attention for its deep Celtic and Gaelic roots which carries through to the mainland as the traditions continue just on the other side of the Canso Causeway! As you travel through Guysborough County you will arrive at the town of Antigonish, home the annual Highland Games and  St. Francis Xavier University – which includes the Coady Institute for International Development. Just a short drive down the highway you can go back in time at the Sherbrooke Village, a living museum where you can experience a traditional Nova Scotia town during the 1860’s and while in Sherbrooke you can enjoy the picturesque St. Mary’s River – a must see for nature lovers!
