The emergency department at the Saint Joseph Hospital in Perth-Andover has reopened after a devastating flood in March damaged the facility. Patients made their return to the hospital in Perth-Andover, N. Emergency services returned to the village hospital today as did inpatients that were displaced from the flood waters in March. The village office remains closed for repairs and today the province confirmed the high school will re-open in the fall, putting to rest any speculation that next year's graduating class may have to start the school year elsewhere.
But the hospital's return is encouraging to residents, many of whom thought it may never re-open. Fifteen patients should be back in the hospital by tomorrow, taking pressure off facilities in Grand Falls and Waterville.
Surgical services are expected to be available by mid-July. "Perth-andover midget atlantics"
