A fire broke out yesterday afternoon in the boiler area of the CWM Hospital

The Health Ministry says due to the fire at the CWM Hospital yesterday afternoon some services will be disrupted for the next few days especially the functions of the boiler and laundry.

It says the services in the anti-natal clinic will be starting later than usual from 10am today.

The Health Ministry says they will ensure that the functions of priority areas such as labour wards, operating theater services, intensive care unit and the emergency department are not disrupted.

It says all other wards at the CWM Hospital will function on emergency mode and non-core services such as pharmacy and clinics will also be disrupted.

In quick response to the situation yesterday, patients were temporarily moved into prearranged evacuation areas within CWM Hospital.

It says some of the patients have been moved back into their wards and others will be moved back to their normal wards today

Teams from the Ministry are on the ground working around the clock to bring services back to normal.

The Ministry is also working closely with all the relevant stakeholders to ensure the same.
