Rylstone Multipurpose Service (MPS) currently remains open for emergencies while damage from last night's storms (Monday 19 February) is assessed and repaired.
Water damage has been caused in parts of the hospital, with staff acting quickly to ensure that areas occupied by patients, included aged care, are safe.
While assessment and immediate repairs are underway, emergency department services will be provided from a different area in the hospital. People coming to the MPS are requested to follow temporary signage and the instructions of staff.
Anyone experiencing an emergency medical condition should dial 000 for an ambulance. Ambulances will take patients to the nearest hospital able to respond to the patient's conditions.
