Surrey Memorial Hospital ER shut by flooding after water main break :

Surrey Memorial Hospital ER shut by flooding after water main break

Twenty five emergency patients have been relocated to other parts of Surrey Memorial Hospital, surgeries are being cancelled and the fire department is on site in an emergency responder role after a water main break caused flooding.

The flooding has crippled the ability to provide patient care in the emergency department as well as diagnostic imaging and surgeries in nearby operating rooms.

The rest of the hospital is open but affected areas are now in decontamination mode as the water main break sent water surging into the emergency room and the adjacent diagnostic imaging department. It's not known whether expensive radiology equipment has been ruined by the flooding.

Up to 200 emergency patients who would normally be seen in the Surrey emergency department today are now being diverted to other hospitals in the Fraser region. Visitors to the hospital are taking detours to enter.


A construction worker operating heavy equipment apparently cut the main water supply. The work is related to a $513 million tower being built as part of the hospital expansion. A five-times bigger emergency department is expected to open sometime next year and the rest of the eight-story tower will open in 2014.

Not even...all they'd need to do is shut down a couple water valves to isolate that section off....the only problem with that though is that the construction worker isn't allowed to touch a city water valve, so they would have had to wait for surreys dept if water to get there to shut it down. But by the looks of it...they cut through a huuuuge watermain...that construction workers company will be billed for all damages to the hospital by the hospitals insurance company though

I hope all patients are still well taken care of...
Times like this is when docs and nurses are much appreciated for their hard work.
