Construction will delay elective surgeries at Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital

Posted: Thursday, September 23, 2010

The S'áxt' Hít Mount Edgecumbe Hospital operating room will experience delays in elective surgery for about three weeks because of the hospital's siding, window and roofing renovation project.

The partial closure currently is scheduled for Monday through Oct. 8, but that could change depending on how the project is going. The operating room closure is so the windows and siding in the operating room area can be replaced.

Emergency surgeries and C-sections will remain available during this time, but elective procedures will be delayed until after the windows and siding are replaced in the operating room. Also, all of the operating room's sterile processing will be done at Sitka Community Hospital during this time.

Since all of the hospital's windows are being replaced in this year-long construction project, there could be other impacts to the inpatient rooms and outpatient services at various times over the next few months.
