We are pleased to share that our Emergency Department is now open and we have resumed care services. Thanks goes out to our staff, Fire and EMS Services and community partners, who all jumped in to support us through the night.

Details about the event

The Hospital continues to investigate the cause, however, we believe that there was a fault that shut off the pre-heat controls within the air handling units, causing cold air to circulate and freeze the heating coils, ultimately causing them to split. This resulted in the majority if the ER being flooded. Engineers are onsite this morning assessing the heating system within the ER and CT Scan area.

Many of our team members came onsite, and those who were at the Hospital stayed to assist, and together we worked to reopen our Emergency Department this morning. It is comforting to know we have incredible first responders available within our community, and the Hospital team sincerely thanks them, our community and neighbouring hospitals for their support.
