(Cypress Health is providing its final update to the hospital situation in Shaunavon as of 5 p.m.):


"After careful investigation it has been determined that plugged sewer vent stacks, which were blocked with ice due to build-up from the recent cold weather, were the sole cause of today’s incident at the Shaunavon Hospital.

Crews are still on site removing the blockages and making minor repairs. The emergency operations centre (EOC) is being revoked and the facility will return to normal operations as of 5:00pm with the re-opening of the acute care and primary health care areas.

We would like to extend our thanks to our staff and supporting businesses who worked on and resolved this incident promptly. We also extend our appreciation to residents of Shaunavon and surrounding areas for the patience that was shown and also for helping to share the message with others.

A full timeline of today’s incident is available on our website:
