Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre’s (RVH) information technology and communication systems are almost completely restored. This morning, a power failure in RVH’s data centre resulted in a shutdown and ongoing disruption of many of RVH’s ITS services, impacting access to information, communication and many clinical systems.
“Although the temporary disruptions did cause information and system access challenges and some clinical delays, care continued to be provided throughout the health centre, including emergency care and surgeries,” says Janice Skot, RVH president and CEO.
RVH will continue to closely monitor and test its systems, but for now, it appears the systems are gradually coming back online and most are functioning normally.
RVH would like to thank patients and the community for their patience during this unexpected disruption.
