UPDATE - July 26, 2017  2 pm

Air Cooling System Working Well as Heat Wave Arrives

The air quality and temperature situation in Lloydminster Hospital remains stable as the community and area faces the onset of another heat wave over the next several days.

A heat warning with outdoor temperatures forecast to be 30 degrees or more is in effect for the City of Lloydminster, the entire east side of Alberta, and along the northern and west central border of Saskatchewan including The Battlefords.

“Regular and frequent monitoring of the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system delivering cool air throughout the hospital will continue,” said Derek Miller, Prairie North Health Region Vice-President of Finance and Operations. “We will be keeping a close watch on the system to ensure the safety and comfort of our patients and staff, as we have since it was compromised by flooding during a torrential rain storm in Lloydminster June 9.”

Miller added, “The system has been working well since it was restored to operation the weekend of July 8-9. It is being augmented by one remaining temporary air cooling unit located outside the facility.”

In total, about two-thirds the usual supply of cool air is being delivered throughout the hospital via a network of temporary ducting that will remain in use until the damaged permanent ducting is replaced. The reduced air supply is due to the temporary ducting being considerably smaller than the damaged segments.

Preparation for installation of the new permanent ducting in the basement and crawl space of the hospital is progressing. Damaged ducts are being capped off and sealed. Jackhammering has been completed, with no noise issues for patients and staff.

All of the new, specially-manufactured replacement ducting is expected to be on site within the next two weeks. Installation will begin immediately.

The entire system is expected to be back to full, normal operation in September.
