RE: Rescheduling of some surgeries at Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre

Four of nine operating rooms at Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre were temporarily closed March 1 following a flooding incident. Some surgeries are being postponed, although urgent and emergency surgeries will proceed without delay. Patients are being directly notified if their surgery is being rescheduled.

Alberta Health Services regrets the inconvenience these temporary closures may have on patients and their families.

Clean up and restoration work is well underway in the areas that sustained water damage, which was caused by construction work taking place on site.

Patient safety is a top priority at AHS, and all safety measures and standards must be in place before the affected operating rooms are reopened.

We want to thank staff and physicians for their quick response and reaction to this situation, and to all of you for your patience during this time.
