Staff at Windsor Regional Hospital are assessing the damage from heavy rainfall which once again resulted in flooding throughout both Windsor Regional Hospital main campuses on Saturday night.

Flooding occurred in most of the locations that were impacted by the July 16 storm, with crews activated quickly to clean affected areas and prevent further damage.

At the Met Campus, flooding occurred at the Emergency Department entrance as well as some procedure rooms and hallways in the Diagnostic Imaging area, where the full extent of flooding is still being assessed. Other areas being cleaned up at Met Campus include the front lobby, the ground level of the Cancer Centre, shipping and receiving and the kitchen.

At the Ouellette Campus, water once again impacted the Cardiac Catheterization Lab, which has been closed since the July 16th flooding. The Cath Lab was on target to reopen on Monday, July 26, but we will now need to reassess those plans. Several hallways and the Ouellette Campus kitchen were also impacted.
