WINNIPEG — St. Boniface Hospital has temporarily closed nine operating rooms due to a malfunctioning air handling system.
The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority announced Wednesday the closures will impact surgeries scheduled for the remainder of this week at the hospital. Repairs are expected to be completed by late Friday.
WINNIPEG — The second phase of the province’s plan to overhaul the health-care system in Manitoba is being rolled out.
With the recent opening of the remodelled and expanded Grace Hospital ER, the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority says it will close Concordia Hospital’s emergency department in June 2019 and convert Seven Oaks General Hospital’s emergency department to an urgent care centre in September 2019.
WINNIPEG — A new emergency department at Grace Hospital will begin accepting patients on Tuesday following a $43.8 million upgrade.
The 38,000-square-foot space is now five times larger than its old unit. It includes a larger ambulance bay equipped to handle the major incident response vehicle (MIRV), if required. It will also act to reduce patient off-load times, and allow for additional assessment and treatment rooms and spaces, as well as a physical connection to the ACCESS Winnipeg West walk-in clinic.
