Elective Surgeries and procedures at Thompson General Hospital have been cancelled.
This is due to significant water damage to several of the facility’s operating rooms.
The water damage was discovered on June 1st, and the cause has been determined to be faulty air conditioning units located on the roof above the operating rooms.
Emergency surgeries and c-sections will continue to be performed at the site, while contingency plans are being developed to have scheduled elective procedures and surgeries proceed at alternate sites.
Clean-up is ongoing, and reconstruction is expected to take a number of months.
