When Orchard Hospital received news that an Evacuation would be taking place Orchard Hospital did everything to ensure patient's safety by evacuating patients to a nearby facility. During the evacuation the Emergency Room remained opened for critical emergencies. During this time the only entrance that was opened for Orchard Hospital was through the Ambulance entrance. Staff placed signs around the building notifying community members that they would need to access the ER through the Ambulance ramp. Hovlid residents were evacuated and are back at Orchard Hospital now.
Depending on what type of an evacuation may occur in the future Orchard Hospital will evaluate if it is safe to have the ER opened for critical emergencies. Follow Orchard Hospital on Facebook for updates of what services would be open during an evacuation.
