Northern Health is asking the public to avoid the University Hospital this weekend, if possible.
There will be partial power outages at the building from 11 pm Friday night through Sunday evening.
Repairs will be done on the switch that caused the power outage last month and upgrades will be made to the health authority’s Information Technology System.
Northern Health’s Jonathon Dyck says the hospital will be prepared in case of emergency.
“Staff and physicians have been going through a lot of contingency plans for this. There aren’t elective surgeries on the weekend as it is. Emergency surgeries will still be available if necessary and if ordered by a physician. The emergency room will be open and able to accept patients.”
