(PLTM) - BVIHSA - The BVI Health Services Authority (BVIHSA) wishes to inform the public of an ongoing issue with the air conditioning (AC) system at the Dr. D Orlando Smith Hospital.

Due to a system control software issue of the AC chilling unit, the hospital is experiencing a temperature control issue that is resulting in on and off cooling cycles. As a result of this situation, the BVIHSA is asking the public for its patience as it maneuvers this technical matter.

We are pleased to report that the system manufacturer has been engaged, and the required parts and software have already been ordered. As soon as the parts arrive in the Territory, a technician from the manufacturer will travel to the BVI to facilitate its installation.

As a result of these ongoing issues, adjustments will be made to some hospital services to ensure a more comfortable environment for patients, guests, and staff. Specifically, we regret to inform the public that all elective surgeries are temporarily on hold and only emergency procedures will be accommodated.

Additionally, changes will be made to our pharmacy outpatient services. The public is advised to send in medication orders using WhatsApp at (284) 440-1726 or to call in refills at (284) 852-7556 for pick up on the following day between the hours of 9:00 AM and 12:00 Noon. This change in schedule will continue until further notice.

We apologize for any inconvenience these adjustments may cause and assure the public that we are making every effort to rectify this situation as soon as possible. The BVIHSA remains committed to providing high-quality healthcare services to all residents of the British Virgin Islands, and we thank the public for their understanding and patience during this time.
