STB Operating Rooms Closure 2014

  • 2014-January-22: Fourteen operating rooms at St. Boniface Hospital shut down earlier this month due to flooding caused by a malfunction with water pumps and air handling systems which allowed cold air to come into contact with and crack hot water coils which heat the rooms.
  • Emergency heart surgeries were diverted to HSC and Grace.
  • Urgent cases are shifted to other hospitals. Victoria, Concordia, and Seven Oaks Hospitals have all received patients from St. Boniface since the shutdown.
  • Officials at the time stated a total of 348 patients had voluntary or elective surgeries cancelled and were being resheduled.
  • Between 2014-Jan-28 & 2014-Feb-4 - heart surgery was done at HSC and patient admitted to SICU then back to CICU when it opened hence the increase number of interfacility transfers between HSC SICU to STB CICU.
