Routine Maintenance At CPDMH

July 14, 2017 by

Routine maintenance to the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital elevator will take place from Monday to Thursday, during the regular Operating Room summer shutdown period. In the interest of patient and staff safety, the medical/surgical unit located on the second floor will be closed while the elevator is out of service.

During the renovations, outpatient space on the first floor will be converted to rooms for 9 medical patients. The hospital team will work closely with Almonte General Hospital and other community partners to support patients and to ensure that patients who need to be admitted to hospital are safely cared for.

The Emergency Department will be fully operational. Patients who require admission may be transferred to another hospital and ambulances may divert some patients as required. Inpatients and families will be advised of any changes in advance of the closure.
