Lab City hospital services mostly restored

Most services have now resumed at the hospital in Labrador City.

Captain William Jackman Memorial Hospital had been operating with limited services because of extensive water damage caused by a broken sprinkler system Friday morning.

However, the operating room and diagnostics remain shut down until further notice.

Labrador-Grenfell Health CEO Tony Wakeham says officials are not sure all will be back to normal.

"The cleanup of the water is continuing," Wakeham said. "But we have to bring in some technicians to look at this equipment before we can start it up again."

He said the health board will advise the public once the suspended services have been restored.

The rest of the hospital, including the emergency room, is open.

The hospital was also closed for several days in early November due to heavy smoke from a nearby apartment building fire.
