LHSC officials confirm that a burst pipe just outside of the operating rooms at Victoria Hospital are putting some surgeries on hold.
The incident occurred just before 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.
As a result, the OR’s have been temporarily closed for maintenance and restoration.
No time frame was given for when the pipe would be fixed, though some of the operating rooms may be reopened by this afternoon.
An official says the burst pipe may result in the cancellation of some scheduled surgeries, but patients are being kept in the loop.
