The elevators at Royal Inland Hospital’s Clinical Services Building are back in service following a double breakdown that was expected to take until the end of the month to repair.
Both elevators in the Clinical Services Building were knocked out of service within hours of each other on Jan. 17 due to an unexpected equipment failures — something RIH director of clinical operations Meagan Hanson told KTW was “very, very rare.”
The parts needed to complete the repairs, weighing hundreds of pounds, had to come from the United States.
Parts arrived on Tuesday and repairs were completed Friday night.
The fault also resulted in major changes to parking at the hospital, which have now been reverted. Patient and visitor paid parking is now back in effect, while physician and staff pass holder parking has returned to the staff parkade behind the hospital.
