Precautionary Evacuation of Hotel Dieu of St. Joseph’s Hospital in Perth-Andover

(HORIZON) April 16, 2014 - News Alert - Effective immediately, Horizon Health Network is evacuating all 23 patients from Hotel Dieu of St. Joseph's Hospital in Perth-Andover and temporarily closing the facility.

 

The decision was made as a precaution due to rising flood waters and the possibility of the facility becoming isolated without a safe method of egress.

 

With the assistance of Ambulance New Brunswick and Emergency Measures Organization, patients, depending on their conditions, will either be transferred to the Upper River Valley Hospital or sent home this evening. Family members of patients are being notified.
