One of the two chillers at the Halifax Infirmary building of the QEII Health Sciences Centre has failed. A rental unit will be delivered and installed next week. In the meantime, to ensure appropriate cooling to priority clinical areas, including operating rooms, cardiac catheterization labs and diagnostic imaging, we have had to reduce cooling to many other areas in the building.
Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) reminds the public that work to improve parking at Dartmouth General Hospital is now underway and will continue through early fall. The first phase of this work will take place through July and August. During this time, drivers can expect changes to existing roadway patterns that will cause congestion and increased traffic leading to the main entrance, so please plan ahead when visiting the hospital.
