Temporary closure of operating rooms at the Lachine Hospital

The operating rooms of the Lachine Hospital have been closed since this morning due to a problem with the humidifier of the ventilation system, necessitating the suspension of activities in this area of the hospital. An inspection of the rooms is currently underway to assess the damage. Corrective work will be done so the operating rooms can be reopened as quickly as possible. All affected patients have been notified and urgent cases will be transferred to the Montreal General Hospital. We are monitoring the situation closely and are working diligently to restore operations.
