Flooding impacts some operations in the Region

Heavy rains in southeast Saskatchewan are impacting some health care operations in Sun Country Health Region.

Sun Country Health Region’s Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) was called into operation on Sunday to deal with the possible risk to residents in Gainsborough and other communities.

Long term care residents at the Gainsborough Health Centre were among those evacuated from Gainsborough on Sunday, June 29 due to flooding in the town. The residents were first transported away from the health centre to the community hall.

After specific arrangements were made, two residents were moved to Moose Mountain Lodge in Carlyle, six to Weyburn Special Care Home and four to Sunset Haven in Carnduff by wheelchair van. Four were able to return to their families on a temporary basis.

SCHR’s EOC continues to monitor flooding potential in all parts of the Region. Flooding of the roads around Maryfield, Redvers and areas is compromising accès to emergency services. Residents in the Redvers Health Centre are on safe ground and will not need to be moved at this time.

Staffing in some areas is an issue as travel may be unsafe. Some staff may not be able to get to work or are dealing with water situation in their own homes. Public health inspectors are assessing the status of drinking water in the flooded areas.  

“The situation is being monitored constantly. The EOC will remain operational and we will continue to evaluate our facilities and services in the communities where flooding is a reality or threat as long as necessary,” says Marga Cugnet, CEO, Sun Country Health Region.

“Our plans are in place and the safety of our patients, residents and clients, as well as our staff, is at the forefront.”
